The Rev. Frederick Scotson Clark (1840-1883) was the founder of the London Organ School and was also Organist of Exeter College, Oxford.

His mother had been a student of Frederic Chopin.

He composed over 100 piano works, as well as a large number of organ pieces, most of them being small "service" pieces.

His marches achieved quite a bit of success and were often available in both organ and piano solo versions.

"Marche Anglaise" is the first in the collection of "Fifteen Marches," copyrighted by G. Schirmer in 1897.

It's a rather predictable item, but it's still fun to play and nice to listen to.

Written in A-B-A format, the piece is in the key of C major, with the central trio in F major. The opening material returns somewhat varied, and there is a brief coda with a little accelerando at the end. The central trio should give you a smile. :-)

ALWAYS nice to here the Hereford Contra Bombarde 32' on Low C!

The score is attached below, the "Marche Anglaise" starting on page 3.

I have no photos of Scotson Clark, but I have attached two photos of the chapel of Exeter College, Oxford, where Clark was organist.
