Bonnie Annie Laurie March
Bonnie Annie Laurie March from The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa: Vol. 2


“Bonnie Annie Laurie” (1883)


Sousa often remarked that the old Scottish ballad “Annie Laurie” was the most beautiful of all folk songs. He wrote this march around it in 1883, but in spite of several printings it was soon forgotten.
