This march by Gordon Tait was recorded in 1916 by Olly Oakley, the zither banjo wizz. I'm sure Tait was flattered to have his piece played at the gallop, with every note coming through without a single fudge, plus a few notes that Oakley added of his own. However, I suspect Tait thought of his piece as a grand march, with all the drum rolls and military effects easy to identify. That's the way I play it here.
