Grenadiers March and Barry Lyndon Clips

Postby Admin Fella » Fri Feb 04, 2011 12:14 pm

My young bloke is learning the recorder at school. Anyway we were mucking around with it and the wife takes it and says "a friend taught me this when i was 12, Don't know what its called". She then proceeds to play the "Grenadiers March"! I was quite shocked and asked her to show me.

So looking at some tunes today i also found this clip:

Seems about a fella called Barry Lyndon, period movie set around SYW. This clip is a cracker of british redcoats advancing on French line. Certainly makes me acknowledge the bravery of soliders in those times to march into such fire.

and another bit..with an extract from the novel

I first saw the movie in 1975, in the late great Barclay cinema in George St. A long long time ago and pretty well much now a galaxy far far away..
It was very rivetting at the time.. later I realised how many mistakes Kubrick actually made..but then it was magic..
