Childhood part deux
As a child my family kept an LP, (that's a large disc made of vinyl with small grooves in it, generally used to keep recordings of songs and music) of the Grand Canyon Suite. Though I have never been there myself, I can easily imagine it with this digital recording. And prayerfuly, one day, when I do go, I'll play this as my family approaches. Enjoy!
All of the pieces are good, but Niagara Falls is my favorite. The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps did it in 2000 as their show in DCI (Drum Corps International) and it was sweet. Google it!
