This very familiar character piece dating from 1907 was originally composed in standard march form but the musical content been rearranged. In this arrangement for pitched percussion instruments (such as marimba and vibraphone) in the key of C a tempo of 96 dotted quarter notes is used in the realisation. Players can chose to play a shortened form ending on the first eighth note (quaver) of bar 88. There isn't too much score detail in the arrangement and as the music originates as a march understandably in a performance there is not much variation of the tempo. The two marimba players parts are shown in full score and these instruments are also used in the realisation. There is one pitched percussion 2 accompaniment available playing at a tempo of 96 dotted quarter note beats (crotchet) to the minute.
