Halloh! – Jagdchor und Steyrer aus der Oper Tony von Ernst Herzog zu Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha, S404

1849
composer
1849; Tony, oder Die Vergeltung

Introduction
Queen Victoria’s cousin Ernst wrote a good deal of music if not exactly a deal of good music, but Liszt was a kind man and actually conducted Tony, oder Die Vergeltung (‘Tony, or The Retribution’), hence the transcription, which does its best with the pretty commonplace hunting chorus. (Liszt also transcribed one of the songs and wrote a march based on a theme from another of the operas!)
