The chapter deals with the relationship between the mainstream music profession and military music in the later nineteenth century. It examines controversies over the standardisation of pitch and other issues in which the military music establishment was seen as an influential force. The chapter also gives an account of military orchestras, especially that of the Royal Artillery which was regarded by some as the best orchestra in London in the late nineteenth century.

Keywords:   Military music, Pitch standardisation, Victorian music, Music profession, Orchestra
