Hail the Conquering Hero

Hail the Conquering Hero February 6, 2012

Here’s my son making his first solo French horn performance, accompanied by me on the piano. The piece is “Hail the Conquering Hero” from Judas Maccabaeus by Georg Friedrich Händel, in the arrangement by Arthur Frackenpohl. The melody is probably more familiar to some as the tune from the hymn “Thine Be The Glory” (among English speakers; in Germany the melody is associated with a Christmas song).
