‘The Funeral March of a Marionette’ by U. Carew Delibes The Society July 24, 2014 Beauty, Performing Arts 1 Comment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJQTF0bkq8s The Funeral March of a Marionette is by Charles Gounod. The marionette’s broken—dead— right off. The funeral procession starts off; it’s D-minor. Mummers’ murmurs of regret are heard. They are comical in the central section’s scene, and quaint. Participants pause for tidbits, are fed. Delightful musical refreshments flourish in D-major. It is like a tasty bagatelle, an appetizer—good, but hardly nourishing. Then, on they travel in their inappreciable hell, like puppets on parade in happy negligence, D-minor, and back to the house wherein they dwell.
