"When Johnny Comes Marching Home" by Patrick Gilmore ( Louis Lambert ) (1829-1892) - Arranged for Brass Quintet and Snare Drum by Brian Bindner.



The lyrics to When Johnny Comes Marching Home were written by the Irish-American bandleader Patrick Gilmore during the American Civil War. Its first sheet music publication was deposited in the Library of Congress on September 26, 1863, with words and music credited to "Louis Lambert"; copyright was retained by the publisher, Henry Tolman & Co., of Boston. Why Gilmore chose to publish under a pseudonym is not clear, but popular composers of the period often employed pseudonyms to add a touch of romantic mystery to their compositions.

This arrangement is made for the "LowCountry Power Brass", and is easy to play, yet sounds great. No notes over G in the trumpets. A great addition to any concert.
