Music & the British Military in the Long Nineteenth Century

The chapter deals with military music as concert music in the second half of the nineteenth century. It deals with the motivations that led to the use of military bands in public parks and the opposition from Sabbatarians. An important section of the chapter deals with the instrumentation of military bands in this period and the ideals of good taste that were encouraged in arranging for military bands. Arrangements dominated the repertoire and the intention was to imitate the sound of the originals.
