It's why I put together a multi-CD collection that includes every different march played from 1991-2007, each of the 34 Marches appearing only once. Due to Strathspeys and Reels having much less variety there's some repetition with those, but overall the collection is far more interesting from the standpoint of repertoire than any one year of the Worlds.

On average a new March appears every two years, resulting in a very slow increase to the repertoire.

Glad I could help.
I thought the march of choice this past season was Lord Alexander Kennedy?

A list of all the tunes all the Grade One finalists played in their Worlds MSRs from 2014 to 2019.

When the CDs and DVDs were being released you could find the tunes listed on the box.

What I haven't double-checked is if the BBC site still has all the videos up from previous years. As I recall they don't.
