March and Caprice is an arrangement based on a juxtaposition of two sea shanties, "What Shall We Do with the Drunken Sailor?" and "Spanish Ladies." It combines these into an aesthetically exciting and technically challenging piece that showcases the agility of the modern concert band. It is designed to be part of a set with its complementary arrangements Fanfare and Dance, a setting of two Irish folksongs, and Chorale and Intermezzo, an exploration into two early American tunes. This work features a lively dialogue between the pointillistic and lyrical natures of these two shanties. It may be programmed alongside its two counterpart arrangements or performed separately to equal effect. Performance length: ca. 2'30”
