Gounod, Charles - Funeral March of a Marionette


Charles Gounod (1818-93) wrote his Funeral March of a Marionette in 1872, originally part of Suite burlesque for piano that he started writing whilst living in London.This satirical piece is intended to parody Henry Chorley, a music critic of the time. Gounod never completed the suite so the Funeral March remains as a single movement, which he then orchestrated in 1879. The piece enjoyed a revival when it was used as the theme to the 1950s TV programme 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'.

This arrangement for trombone octet is by Duncan Wilson and is scored for 6 tenors and 2 bass trombones.
