Misc. Comments

In the preface of his thematical catalogue Gerson writes about the term 'Mourning March' At the beginning af September 1819 the persecution of Jews reached Copenhagen. During the eve of the uproar I was bound to my room and considered the eventuality that all Jews were expelled to Jerusalem and soon had to take refuge there. For those events I composed my first, until now only, mourning march, probably not the poorest among my works.
