Tuesday Turbo Boost: Conflicted Emotions

The Great War began 100 years ago, and this music was part of the landscape of the time.  The Pomp and Circumstance marches celebrated the pomp and circumstance of war, and that removes much of the appeal of these powerful compositions, but I love them anyway.  Placing these songs in the context of the times a century ago stirs up great emotions in the hearts of history buffs.  Listen to this, and read the history until you feel it too.  It's great music, in spite of the history that followed it.
