This is fun! Miloslav Koenneman was a composer and military musician who came to Baden-Baden around 1850. He composed this very charming piece of music - a little like Hans Christian Lumbye. It is performed outdoors every year in Baden-Baden and the audience is meant to sing along in the hymn in the end of the piece - like Pomp and Circumstance. Even Mark Twain loved it - arriving tired in Baden-Baden around the time when Koenneman was there and the author writes that the piece "delighted me, warmed me, moved me, stirred me, uplifted me, enraptured me." So this is a must - also for the tender and melancholy Gounod piece at the end of the CD. You will love this one.
