Gloire immortelle de nos aïeux (Soldiers' Chorus from 'Faust') - C. Gounod

arr. Gerard Posch for choir and band

For Male Choir and concert band.

Charles Gounod’s opera ‘Faust’ tells the story of the old Dr. Faust who once again wants to be young and feel the passion of love. He concluded a pact with the devil - Méphistophélès - that helps him to seduce the beautiful Marguerite. In the fourth act of the opera, the soldier Valentin (Marguerite’s brother) returns with his company from the war in a military march. They sing ‘Gloire immortelle de nos aïeux’. This chorus became very popular as the ‘Choeur des Soldats’ (‘Soldiers’ Chorus’) and is now transcribed for male choir and Symphonic Band by dutch arranger Gerard Posch.
