Originating from the American Civil War as a lullabye, Taps has come to be associated with funerals and memorial services as well as a signal for dusk. In Paoli 1 it is played during the Memorial Day Service for Clifton Lisle by the Drum and Bugle Corps. Often the bugle call is played by two buglers in an off set echo adding to the effect of the music. Scouts will also experience Taps at Horseshoe where it is played at night to signal 10 O'Clock or "lights out".

The audio can be heard here.

The sheet music can be found here.
