Humperdinck composed this revised ending for a production in Dessau in 1894, staged by Cosima Wagner, in which he incorporated 'Der alte Dessauer-Marsch', an infantry march dating from c.1705. The march dominates the music from the third system until the end, creating a much more extended instrumental ending than the original Weimar version, which is only eleven bars long. The march is here notated in double the time values found in contemporary printed sources for the tune, such as Emil Pauer's Sammlung der berühmtesten Deutschen, Französischen und Italienischen Märsche (1875), no.36 (p.69).
