Previously published, 1847 by Falter & Sohn (Munich)

Composed by Thomas Täglichsbeck , (1799/12/31, Ansbach‒1867/10/05, Baden-Baden). Täglichsbeck worked as conductor and violinist of several court orchestras; Kapellmeister of the House of Hohenzollern-Hechingen. Composed symphonies, concertos, several operas, string quartets and other chamber music. Now almost totally forgotten, this series of patriotic festival songs is scored for SATB choir, SATB soloists, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, and tuba. This edition modernizes brass transpositions and turns the original “Ophykleide oder Bombardon” part into something that more closely resembles music for Tuba (I think F Tuba would be best). The piano accompaniment is from the original edition and was designed to be used in place of the brass ensemble. [In addition to what appears in the score, the PDF package also includes a piano/vocal score, B-flat trumpet parts and trombone parts in bass clef.]
