March of the Priests
March of the Priests (Priestermarsch) - from The Magic Flute, 2-3 octaves, level 2, 2009, Flagstaff, FL HB 366
An arrangement of March of the Priests from The Magic Flute (K620 - 1791) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791).
The premiere performance of The Magic Flute was on 30 September 1791 in Vienna, under the direction of the composer. Within months of his conducting this first performance Mozart was dead, aged just 35. It has been said that the theme of March of the Priests may have inspired Calixa Lavallée's music for the Canadian national anthem "O Canada".
