Eric Coates: London Bridge March on Pathe News
Recently I posted a short article about Eric Coates fine London Bridge March. The other day I came accross this superb Pathe Newsreel of this piece being condunted by the composer. At the start of the film,there are some fine shotsof the composer himself, sketching the score and looking out across London. He has the ubiquitious cigarette in his hand...
I need say no more - save this is an amazing piece of musical history.
