Framing the new disc from the Atlanta Symphony, Britannia, are two of Sir Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance" marches (yes, he wrote more than one). Between those, Donald Runnicles leads the ASO in Peter Maxwell Davies' Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise, James MacMillan's Britannia, Benjamin Britten's Sinfonia da Requiem, and Three Screaming Popes by Mark-Anthony Turnage. Today we'll just hear those two "Pomp and Circumstances."

All Midday Music selections except the keyboard concertos come from new releases as well.
