The History of British Military Bands Volume 3 - Infantry & Irish

£40.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book has a gilded title on the spine, and the book includes the original dust jacket. The cover of the book has some minor but noticeable markings on it, but is without major issue overall. The jacket however has been torn at the back and taped back together before it was donated. There are also some minor tears on some corners, as well as some slight fraying on some edges. The original price is still included in the jacket and has not been cut. Inside, the pages of the book are in very good condition overall, and the vast majority, if not all, are without issue. The book includes a CD, which has not been used for testing.

'British military music has evolved from the basic battlefield signals on drums, fifes and trumpets, into a quality of sound and instrumentation which demands playing standards and musicianship of the highest order. This magnificently illustrated series covers more than three centuries of that evolution... This volume covers The King's Division, The Prince of Wales's Division and The Light Division. Included are many of the most famous and venerated county regiments - such as The King's Regiment, The Green Howards, The South Wales Borderers and the Sherwood Foresters - together with all Light Infantry regiments.'

This is the third in a monumental three-volume study that traces the history of British military music from its early beginnings, when the basic signals on the battlefield were drums, fifes and trumpets, to the modern era.
