$ 16.99

The history of the Saint Petersburg Admiralty Navy Band goes way back to the times of Peter the Great. In 1704, the Great Tsar ordered twenty-nine of his men to start learning music. Played by the Saint Petersburg Imperial Navy Band and conducted by Alexey Karabanov, this imported Russian title features traditional marches of the Life Guards and ceremonial songs like the Russian Tap-too to beat Retreat. These twenty-four tracks include various renditions of Marches of the Life Guards plus Post Call, Call to Prayer, and the former Russian national anthem Koll Slaven (I Pray for the Power of Love), and more. This recording is an unusual gem in military music; a true piece of history
