ED: 21 November 1947 – Unsigned [Article about Royal Wedding March]



The Dispatch, 21 November, 1947

In accordance with ancient Scottish custom for national events such as the Royal Wedding, a bagpipe tune has been composed entitled “her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth’s Wedding March.” The Princess has accepted the MSS. bound in Royal blue leather from the composer, Mr. John Grant of Groathill Avenue, Craigleith, who tells me that the tune is a “four-part march in two-four time with a fine swing and a lovely air.” This, incidentally, is the fourth Royal Wedding march Mr. Grant has composed.
