Although more famous for his incidental music to A Midsummer Night's Dream, Mendelssohn was commissioned by the King of Prussia to provide music for Racine's religious drama Athalie, which includes the "War March of the Priests." The march tune draws its energy from a repeating triplet figure in the introduction, and features a nice legato contrasting section. A great opportunity to teach style and nuance! (2:45)
