The Green and the Gold
(Lions' March)Christopher W Johnson - CWJ Music House
Publisher Desc. THE GREEN AND THE GOLD is a concert march that was commissioned by the North Hunterdon Music Association (NJ) for Mr. Vincent Angeline, North Hunterdon High School band director of 30 years, in honor of his retirement. As Mr. Angeline was an avid fan of John Philip Sousa, hints of several of his best 6/8 marches are stylistically present within the piece, such as The Washington Post, Semper Fidelis, and The Liberty Bell. The trio is written around one of Mr. Angeline's favorite songs, the widely popular Funiculi, Funicula. This work was written to honor the musical passion that Mr. Angeline instilled in his students. It is about the love of music- which is what band is all about! Be sure to program this new march to motivate and inspire your band students this spring!
