The Earle of Oxford His March (take 2)



 Genre: Electronic

Get Flash to see this player.

Another Mod-Ren arrangement from Wm Byrd's 1589 opus. The Fitzwilliam Virginal Booke calls it "The Earle of Oxford His March", and in My Ladye Nevell's Booke it's called"Before The Battell". It seems Byrd liked the tune and used it more than once. A favorite of high school bands as well.

A clean-up remix. Simplified the percussion part, backed off on compression / limiting, minor tweaks throughout.
