Triumph of Time March
Triumph of Time March from The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa: Vol. 2


Triumph of Time” (1885)


Since Sousa did not discuss this march in any of his writings, the origin of the title must be left to speculation. Although the music was copyrighted in six different years, Time did indeed triumph over it–it was never popular.
