Beethoven's Symphony no. 7, arranged for Harmonie

Harmonie XXI

L. van Beethoven: Symphony No 7. Arranged for Harmonie by ¿W. Sedlak?, and Wellington's Victory, or the Battle of Vitoria (selection)

The popularity of the Harmonie led to arrangements of works including Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 for this ensemble. This symphony was premiered on the same program as Wellington’s Victory, or, the Battle of Vitoria, representing France and Great Britain using two very well-known tunes: “Rule Britannia” and “Marlborough has left for the War” (now known as “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow”), respectively.
