See the Conquering Hero Comes was composed by the great baroque composer George Friedrich Handel and is a chorus from his popular Oratorio Judas Maccabaeus. The work was composed in 1746 and was first performed in Covent Garden, London in 1747. In 1884, Edmund Louis Budry wrote new words to this chorus to create the very stirring and well known hymn Thine Be the Glory. This theme and variations arrangement of Handel's famous piece features all sections of the band and makes a very effective concert opener or finale for young bands.

Effective as an opener or closer, this is a satisfying way to introduce students to a significant composer.
