Composed in 1941 for the film "49th Parallel - The Invaders", the drama and depth of the music was intended to influence the United States, which was then neutral, to enter the war. The title relates to the border between the U.S. and Canada. A complete description can be found at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/49th_Parallel_%28film%29.

The power, drama, and technical accessibility of this piece should be one that all bands would take great pride in performing.
