The Admiral's March

The Admiral's March is a composition created to celebrate the 75th. Anniversary (1945-2020) of the acquisition of Hatchlands Park in Surrey by The National Trust. The Honourable Edward Boscawen and his wife Frances commissioned the building of the house in 1756. When the house was completed the Admiral enjoyed only 2 years there before his death in 1761. The Admiral's March is 2 minutes in duration and has been written to be played on the Walker three manual pipe organ in the Music Room. It may be played, however, on any two or three manual organ. It is available as a single piece or as an inclusion in the Organ Album Volume 2. All the proceeds from the sale of this piece as a single item will go to the Trust's Organ Appeal. A piano solo version is also available. See Piano Works.
