Tune of the Day: Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral

from “Lohengrin” by Richard Wagner

This piece, taken from Wagner's 1850 opera Lohengrin, occurs at Act II, Scene 4, where all are going to the Minster for the ceremony that will occur at the beginning of Act III. The piece starts with a subtle opening which sets the stage for a dramatic build-up, leading very well into any triumphant piece, particularly the famous Bridal Chorus, which falls immediately after this piece in the opera.

Thanks to Anastasia for suggesting this piece!
