Three-part marches from Bremner's "Collection of Airs and Marches for two Violins or German Flutes, some of which have basses", London, c.1765.
This collection is indicative of the marches available to military bands at the time of the accession of George III, comprising old Handel favourites, other standards (Reid's "Garb of Old Gaul" continues in use today) and newer more ephemeral items. Bremner removed his publishing business from Edinburgh to London in 1762, and the current collection includes a slight imbalance in favour of items of Scottish origin. At this date, military band pieces tend to survive in two and three parts which, with appropriate percussion, appears adequate. It was not until the 1780s that five part arrangements were considered necessary.
