Chanson Des Marseillois by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle arranged by Felix Horetzky (1796-1870)

Mauro Giuliani “La Marseillaise” is the national anthem of France. The song was written in 1792 by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle. The Marseillaise was a revolutionary song, an anthem to freedom, a patriotic call to mobilize all the citizens and an exhortation to fight against tyranny and foreign invasion. The French National Convention adopted it as the Republic’s anthem in 1795. It acquired its nickname after being sung in Paris by volunteers from Marseille marching on the capital.
