Default 4 parted 4/4 march

Looking for a good 4 parted 4/4 march to go with Cabar Feidh, Jimmy Finlater, and Falkland Palace. I'd prefer a "people mover" and not something loaded with finger gymnastics.

"People Mover"...got that from Alasdair Gillies...a tune to move people up the street as opposed to a competition tune. From the 2/4 idiom..."Brown Haired Maiden" is a "people mover" while "Bonnie Ann" is a competition tune. I don't need harmony...it's just me playing for a department graduation at U of Illinois. Planning ahead for next year. Playing 2 parted tunes this year.

The Inner Guard by Robert Mathieson is very musical.

Those are 2-parted marches. Low reading comprehension.
