Victory celebrates the end of the then called Great War (the war hopefully intended to end all wars) and is personified on the cover of the original sheet music by a modern young miss clad in the Stars and Stripes singing, hand on heart, and confidently facing a bright, if uncertain, future. The march itself certainly reflects this. It is bright, cheerful and bounds along with joy in a Sousaesque manner. Indeed one could be forgiven on a first hearing to believe that Victory had been written by the great man himself. The tuneful melodies are just perfect for recorders as is borne out inn this adaptation for recorder sextet. The 1st voice has a lot of fun alternating between descant and sopranino whilst the other voices all have their moments.
Victory was published by the National Music Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
