I have just been listening again to a recording by the Odense (would that in fact be Odessa?) Symphony Orchestra of Berlioz's 'Grande Symphonie Funebre et Triomphale', written for the re-interment with honours of some heroes of the French Revolution. It's a work that's not often heard, but is well worth seeking out. You can find the recording I mentioned on YouTube. It is characterised more by enthusiasm than accuracy, but is none the worse for that.
