 I found it! February 16, 2013 By Christian Hettinger (Wilton, NH) See All My Reviews "I have been looking for this recording of La Marseillaise for years, and I'm going to order it today. I hope that Robert is NOT correct in his criticism of the rest of the tracks. How could they possibly be as bad as he says? The Baltimore Symphony is a fine orchestra!" Report Abuse
 La Marseillaise August 21, 2012 By Robert G. (Townsville, Queensland) See All My Reviews "I purchased this cd for one track only-track 9 La Marseillaise & it is the best rendition of the French National Anthem I have heard. I did not care much for the other tracks but it was worth the outlay for trck 9." Report Abuse
