An arrangement for Oboe Quartet, optional Keyboard & Percussion of the March from ’Judas Maccabaeus’.

There are also easy parts for your young beginner players.

In music, almost all the compositions inspired by the Hasmonean revolt are primarily concerned with Judah. In 1746, the composer George Frideric Handel composed his oratorio Judas Maccabeus putting the biblical story in the context of the Jacobite Rising; one of the themes is used as the tune for the popular Christian Easter hymn Thine Be The Glory, Risen Conquering Son. This work, with libretto by Thomas Morrell, had been written for the celebrations following the Duke of Cumberland’s victory over the Scottish Jacobite rebels at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The oratorio’s most famous chorus is "See, the conqu’ring hero comes." Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus was often performed in the Land of Israel, with the motif of "conqu’ring hero" becoming a Hanukkah song.

Tom Lehrer refers to Judas Maccabeus in his song "Hanukah in Santa Monica".

Mirah refers to Judah Maccabe in her song "Jerusalem".
