Publisher: Cimarron Music Press
for woodwind quintet
b Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826)- German composer
Arranged by John Jay Hilfiger. Carl Maria von Weber composed his Jubilee Overture in 1818 to commemorate the 50th year of the reign of Frederick Augustus I of Saxony. The work concludes with the familiar tune, "Heil dir im Siegerkranz" (God Save the King). Because this tune is known in the United States with the words, "My Country 'Tis of Thee", the overture may be performed as a concert work, but also may find a place at patriotic events.
