🎺 Brass Band or Wind Band
The brass band version and the wind band version both come with two sets of parts: one in A4 layout for concert settings and one in small landscape 7in x 5in for marching folios.
“Lithgow, composer of Invercargill March, presents another sensational march hit … If you played his Invercargill March, you won’t have to try sample parts at all, you will buy any march by Lithgow on sight. Gippsland is a triumph of march writing.”
“There is something so different and so wonderfully snappy about the marches of Lithgow. Once you have heard a Lithgow march you won’t rest until you have heard them all.”
“Invercargill, that wonderful Australian march hit … holds all records for sales, and is the most remarkable hit we have published in years.” — Carl Fischer, NY.
