Memorial Day – ‘Bugler’s Holiday’


We remember all those who have given so much so that we may have a day with friends and family. It seems fitting to honor the humble “Bugler Boy.”

Here is presented “Bugler’s Holiday” by Leroy Anderson, composed in 1954. This is the original version played by Leroy Anderson and the Boston Pops Orchestra’

Wishing everyone an enjoyable day.

    Wow. When I played trumpet in the high school band, the first four trumpets (myself included) did Bugler’s Holiday at one of our concerts. It was the hardest piece of music I ever learned. We had to memorize it and stood off to the side of the concert band to play it. I remember being exhausted when it was over. Totally exhausted. I sure did enjoy hearing it played by someone else!! Thanks for that!

    In Flanders Fields

    John McCrae, 1872 – 1918

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place, and in the sky,
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the dead; short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe!
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high!
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.
