Triumphal March
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Alfred Hollins (1865–1942) was born in Hull, Yorkshire, and in spite of blindness enjoyed a career which included organ recitals in America, Australia and South Africa, composing for the instrument, acting as an organ consultant, and playing for many years at West St George’s Church, Edinburgh. His compositions—for the most part one-movement works with fanciful titles—belong to the secular tradition of organ-writing spawned by the advent of the British concert organ. His Triumphal March is a fine example of Hollins’s easy mastery, and although it has all the panache of Elgar’s great marches, it says much for Hollins that it nowhere sounds even remotely like the work of his famous contemporary.
