Re: [ARSCLIST] E or F?
From mostly the same sources, it's in E.

There is now about to be a gigantic Homer Simpson "D'oh!" moment as I
beat myself over the head with the album cover and admit that I can't
read (or something). Please do not ask why I wrote "Crown Imperial".
It's "ORB AND SCEPTRE".
Many apologies. Now..E or F?
(Elgar's Imperial March is also on this album, I know Crown Imperial
from other contexts, blah blah blah. Sorry!)
I just checked three British orchestral recordings, a Wind Band
recording, and a transcribed organ arrangement, plus I have played the
organ part several times with both orchestras and bands and can vouch
that all of the above and every arrangement I have ever seen are in C.

Quick, geniuses..is Walton's "Crown Imperial" March in E or F? Got it
here on a London LP that at 33.3 plays exactly between those keys.
Other tracks on the LP aren't as far off pitch..which way do we go? My
instincts tell me E.
