An additional Cherubini work, the March funÃ¨bre (1820), closes the album in dramatic fashion. Referring to its repeated gong strokes and "passionate dissonances," Martin Pearlman observes, "As we might expect from a march, this is ceremonial music, very different in spirit from the profoundly emotional Requiem, and it indulges much more freely in theatrical effects."
