The Turkish March - Ken Purvis
Transcription by Ken Purvis – “Military Music of the War of 1812” p.11
“Turkish music became popular in continental Europe in the early 18th century but seems not to have been adopted by the British until the last quarter of the century … Although the influence of Turkish music was most strongly felt among the army’s bands of music, some corps of drums registered its effect as well.” – Mark McDayter
