Prusssia’s Gloria (Glory of Prussia) Armeemarschsammlung (army march collection) II, 240 is a well known march of the 19th century. Its composer was Johann Gottfried Piefke (1817-1884) Prussia’s Gloria was written 1871 after Prussia’s victory in the Franco-Prussian war, which led to the unification of Germany. For the victory parade of the returned troops the march was performed for the first time in public in Frankfurt (Oder), Piefke’s garrison. As Piefke only performed it on important occasions the march was unknown to a broader public for a long time. In 1909 the manuscript of the almost forgotten tune turned up and was reworked by army-musical inspector Prof. Grawert. Shortly afterwards it was included in the collection of Prussian army marches. Today it is one of the most known German army marches. It is played by the Bundeswehr (Federal Army) often on official ceremonies, as state visits. But it also is a standard tune in many international military bands. In Germany it is often played by non-professional bands due to its popularity. It has also been adopted by units in other armies, for example by the First Squadron, The Honourable Artillery Company.
