La Marseillaise Lisle Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
La Marseillaise is the French national anthem. It was written in 1792 by Rouget de Lisle, originally titled "War song of the army of the Rhine". - "Chant de guerre pour l'armée du Rhin". It had been composed as a patriotic song supporting the French government in its war against Austria and Prussia in 1792. This was just before the beginning of the French Revolution. Later on, volunteers from Marseilles heard the song and joined in a storming of the Tuileries on August 10, 1792. The title became Marches des Marseillais, and it became the revolution's anthem. In 1795 the victorious revolutionary government declared it to be the national anthem. Since then it has been replaced by other tunes several times, but in 1879 it was restored as the French national anthem, now simply called "La Marseillaise"..

Allons enfants de la Patrie, Le jour de gloire est arrivé ! Contre nous de la tyrannie, L'étendard sanglant est levé, (bis) Entendez-vous dans les campagnes Mugir ces féroces soldats ? Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras Égorger vos fils, vos compagnes ! Aux armes, citoyens, Formez vos bataillons, Marchons, marchons ! Qu'un sang impur Abreuve nos sillons.
