The Phantom Regiment

Composed for orchestra, The Phantom Regiment was completed May 23, 1951. It is 3 minutes and 20 seconds long. It was first performed when recorded by the composer on June 29, 1951, in analog mono sound. It was re-recorded in analog stereo sound by the composer on June 11, 1959.

Composer quote: "The next number is a musical picture that is fully described by the title - - - "The Phantom Regiment." As you will hear, a nameless body of soldiers approaches from the distance to the sound of trumpets. As they draw nearer the music grows louder and louder, and finally they march away into the distance."
