During the 1940's, BBC radio listeners enjoyed a weekly comedy programme, which starred the comedian Tommy Handley, called It's That Man Again (ITMA). A feature of each programme was a witty arrangement for orchestra of a popular or Music Hall song. These were always made specially for the programme, many were by Jacob, Gordon. The Galloping Major was an ITMA arrangement. A popular Music Hall tune from the Victorian era, in Jacob, Gordon's hands, becomes a musical gem. This new version for Concert Band, transcribed by Steadman-Allen, Ray, retains all the fun of the original.
