Flourish for a good fellow

Peter Guthrie


A short arrangement of "For he's a Jolly Good Fellow" for use at celebrations.

The tune originally comes from the French folk song "Marlbrough s'en va-t-en guerre" ("Marlborough Has Left for the War") sometime in the early 18th century. It only became widely known much later, even coming to be used as a theme in Beethoven's "Wellington's Victory". In the UK we know it only as the tune for "For he's a Jolly Good Fellow".
