Subject: RE: Marching Songs (not cadences)
I don't know what was usual in ER I's time, but are you sure HMO soldiery marched in step? And singing withal?
On the continent [i.e. in real Europe] marching in step was introduced long after the 30 year's war, and singing mostly took place after a day's work, around the camp fire with a bumper in your hand.
