Here is a fantastic piece based on the traditional fife and drum tune The Girl I Left Behind Me.  Popular during the French and Indian War and the American Revolution, this familiar tune provides the source material for the other melodies in the piece.  Opening in a straightforward setting, moving to a lyrical B-section (with trumpet solo), and finishing with a climactic overlapping of themes similar to the writing of Gustav Holst, this work is sure to be a winner for concert and adjudication programming.
