Misc. Notes This quite different C minor march (with a somewhat similar trio) received the same title. (Should probably go under a different workpage. Both are claimed to be a reduction of the work CH Bach conducted at the funeral ceremony in Milwaukee- unless he conducted different marches different places?)
