Misc. Notes C major. Hawkes School Series No.25. Titled "Pomp and Circumstance: Theme from March No.1", probably for US publication, but comparison with the composer's arrangement shows clearly that this is an arrangement of the complete song Land of hope and glory.
The E Horn parts are the F Horn parts transposed. The complete score indicates Trumpets, where the parts are for Cornets. The Violin III part appears to be a substitute for Viola.
