This is an excellent record, one which I have just bought to replace the one originally given to me as a present in high school a long time ago. It is a great pity that this record has not been put on CD as it is representative of the music of the Grande Armee.

The national anthem of the Napoleonic empire is included, 'Let Us Watch O'er the Empire', and the piece is the one that Napoleon preferred to La Marsellaise. It is grand and subtle at the same time. One of the best marches is one that was played by the bands of the Imperial Guard when an officer was late for formation, announcing to all and sundry that there was a latecomer to formation. it's nickname of 'The Cripple' is fitting and it is just a little off-cadence so the tardy officer could not march to it. One can almost see the disgusted and angry face of the offending officer as he hurries to his place in the formation to the joy of the enlisted men...

This record is highly recommended if you wish to get the flavor of the military music of the First French Empire and the spirit of Napoleon's Grande Armee.

I liked this recording because I first heard it many years ago when I borrowed it from the main library in Brooklyn, NY. It was interesting to hear the martial music that Napoleon would have heard in his day.
