SIEGFRIED'S FUNERAL MARCH (also called Siegfried's Funeral Music) from "Götterdämmerung" (Twilight of Gods), which is the last in the cycle of four music dramas Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung).

Wagner's original orchestration includes a bass trumpet, two Wagner tubas in E-flat, two Wagner tubas in B-flat, and six harps.  For this transcription for wind orchestra, those brass parts are given to standard concert band brass instruments, and the harp parts are combined and edited into one part.

Parts No. 4260 are transposed from the original parts which are indicated in brackets, with or without modification.
