Historic: Rouget de Lisle's "Marseillaise" (Jebulon)


French anthem, created in the first hours of 26 april 1792 in Strasbourg by Rouget de Lisle,called at the beginning "War Song for the Rhine Army" and dedicated to Marshal Luckner.It's unclear where its origin is.The title varied in the course of history.The French Republic took the song as anthem on 14 july 1795.There are many musical sources with notes of the "Marseillaise" - also in movies and in literature (Stephan Zweig).The melody has also similarity with a quintet of Luigi Boccherini(1773)which could have inspired Rouget de Lisle. Later,Beethoven,Offenbach,Verdi and Wagner and other musicians used the melody and/or the text.Well known is its use in "Casablanca".Also the Russians in February 1917 needed the melody as well as the Beatles in "All you need is love".
