The March of Time (two different steps)

When Shostakovich wrote the score to the film New Babylon (Новый Вавилон) he was at less of a remove from the Franco-Prussian War, than we are from WWII, to-day.
Four years ago to-day, I learnt that some organ pieces of mine would be used in the Prelude to the funeral service for former Senator Claiborne Pell in Newport, Rhode Island.
