This significant new book provides an overview of the history of military bands in Canada, including bands, marches, pipes, drums and tattoos. Through their longtime interest and experience with military bands the authors have collected information on individual bands, marches and songs, recordings, and many rare photographs which are featured in this book. Their careful research into this subject not previously well documented presents the remarkable tale of the men and women of the Canadian Forces Music Branch, past and present. This book explores the immense talent and creative ability of the band musicians, who have never received the recognition they deserve.

Also included: Histories of the Regimental Marches, A song book, A chart of military band instruments, Biographies of Canadian Directors of Music and Bandmasters and Pipe Majors.
