    The Triumphant Stars Of America

    Another mid-Nineteenth Century march by CHARLES ZEUNER. (1843)
    Seems to be a processional style march.

    It's a fine march. Over-all it's a good rendition.

    I can't quite tell what instruments you are using on this but it has a different sound.

    Hi Phil, thanks for listening.
    This was a small band-all in CMB.
    I kept looking at one note( a D#) which didn't fit in very good. It
    seemed to act as a leading tone, but the harmony didn't support it. Perhaps it sounds OK on piano.
    I believe that a common practice throughout the 19th Century was to enter wrong notes in written music & correct it when playing.
    I was recently in a conversation about an arranger (years ago) who copied music by ear always altered enough notes to avoid copy infringement.

    Another name I can't say I've heard before, Zeuner.

    Thanks for bringing it by, Gary... nice march!

    My best,

    Thanks for listening, David.
    I guess when your contemporaries are Brahms, Berlioz, Mendelssohn, chopin, and Schumann, it's hard to rise to fame.
    I have enjoyed searching the Congressional Library for historical pieces.
