The Thunderer

Composer: Sousa

SKU: RSAK0021

Arranger: Keith Wilkinson

Quick Overview

This march, one of Sousa's most popular compositions, was written in 1889 and was dedicated to the Knights Templar of Washington, D.C.  Sousa had been knighted by that organization three years earlier.  The origins of the name of the march are unclear and the march is noteworthy not only for Sousa's usual creative skills but also for the use, in two sections of the march, of military-style percussion and, in the last section, of featured fanfares.
