Escort to the Colour - Escort to the Colour (arr Ridings)

 To reduce the repetition of the Grenadiers’ Slow March, a new arrangement made by Major Richard Ridings, the then Senior Director of Music was introduced in 1978 to be played from the point when the Escort to the Colour step off in slow time to the point when the remaining Guards ‘Present Arms’ as the Colour is trooped along the ranks.  The march is based on themes from Waldteufel’s waltz “The Grenadiers”, thus maintaining the Grenadier connection with this part of the ceremony. 

 

The Band of The Grenadier Guards plays with kind permission of the British Army.
