I've now recorded which I think is a more original version. It adds a few bars of noisy intro and an extra development section, both of which are great fun.
I do wonder why MAH chose to play what seems a somewhat abridged version. But there must a number of different settings of this popular tune so I guess we may never know.

Gounod - Funeral march of a Marionette (5:07)

Chris,

Some really good use of contrasts in dynamics and texture. Love it.
Your chords are so together and the timing is great.

Yes, I too recall it to be the theme of the Alfred Hitchcock T.V. series in the USA during the 1960s.
Reminds me of the good old days.

Kaila
