Richard Lambert Music

March in C (Op.28 No.4)

A march for organ suitable as entry or exit music for a bride, or as a lively general-purpose organ voluntary

This is structured as A B A C A so that the piece can be shortened to A B A when occasion demands.

Essentially simple in content, the stirring opening section is contrasted with two episodes, in A minor, and a softer section in F major, before returning to conclude with an extended final statement and triumphant coda.

Reviews

What a very useful piece! Its structure and adaptability would suit any building, from a small chapel to a cathedral, but would sound great on a large organ.

Just the right introduction to a wedding if you'd like something a bit different with good tunes and atmospheric ambience.
