Description: elaboration of J.S.Mayr’s march, very well known at the time (the musicologist Iris Winkler is sure that it was one of the music performed at Richard Wagner’s funeral) and very suitable, in this version, for performance in concert or on liturgical occasions such as deads commemoration.
