, one of Sousa's most enduring and popular pieces, is a bright march taken from the operetta of the same name. Its form is AABBCCDD with a 4-bar introduction and a 6-bar passage between the CC and DD strains. The AABB strains are in the key of C-major with a time signature of 6/8 whilst the CCDD strains' key and time signature are F-major and 2/4 respectively. A lovely touch which surely keeps the performers on their toes. The treble voice has the melody from start to finish with some high-key phrases up to A and both the tenor and bass voices have plenty to do. Splendid stuff!
