MARCH IN THE BATTLE OF FLODEN . English, March (4/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The Battle of Flodden, fought in Northumberland in 1513, saw the demise of King James IV of Scotland. There was a two-act opera called Marmion! or, The Battle of Flodden Field (1811), perhaps inspired by Sir Walter Scott's epic poem "Marmion," published in 1806. Whether or not the march in Waverton, Cumbria, musician John Rook's 1840 music manuscript collection is associated with the opera is not known.
