Tune of the Day: La victoire est à nous
by André Grétry
“La victoire est à nous” (“Victory is ours”) was originally an air from the 1783 opera La Caravane du Caire by André Grétry. It was later adapted as a military march by David Buhl, and it was notably played when Napoleon's imperial army, the Grande Armée, captured Moscow in 1812.
Thanks to Steve for suggesting this tune!
