Bourgeois spent most of his life in Britain, but after retiring in , he and his wife settled in Mallorca. He often used his experiences to inspire him to write a wealth of different works.

As aforementioned, Bourgeois was a prolific composer for brass and wind bands. Bourgeois symphonic works must also receive a mention. Although none properly perforated into commercial concert hall programmes, by the time of his death in , Bourgeois had composed a massive symphonies.

The work was actually composed for his own wedding to be originally performed by an organist as the guests left the main ceremony.

The orchestration for wind band has become the most popular for this work, with it being a staple in many band rooms. The melody is syncopated with the accompaniment, and accentuates the strong beats of the bar. The flutes then take over the melody, this time changing the direction of the melody. The flutes and clarinets then unite play their respective themes together.

The saxophones also join in here before a rumble into the main section of the piece. With the band now all playing together the work unites to play the melody. As the percussion begins to filter in, the dynamics begin to grow and the glorious melody feels more natural with every rotation.

The music comes to a quiet close with a tambourine accompaniment before a cheeky flute flourish to end this sweet work. Although originally composed for organ, the wind band arrangement is far popular and is played fairly regularly around the world.
