Brine requested that the work be a march suitable for performance at both a wedding and a funeral. Although originally titled Brines March, when the composer learned that the march was to receive its premiere on 15 March, he changed the title to Ides March in a humorous nod to the Shakespearean admonition Beware the Ides of March- in his youthful view a sentiment appropriate for either a wedding or a funeral.

However, a line from Cole Porter was the inspiration behind the major key to minor key interplay of the work: What could be any finer? But how strange the change from major to minor, every time we say goodbye, a line that captured the composers attempt to write a march that did justice to both the melancholy and triumphant.
