This original work for military band was written by the great composer in honor of the young King, Ludwig II, who became Wagner's greatest patron. Col. Bourgeois' meticulously edited edition enables the modern concert band to play this masterwork as it was originally presented.  The brass section plays a prominent role, with separate parts for cornet, fluegelhorn and trumpet.

Written for the centennial of Loyola University, New Orleans and premiered by the Loyola University Band on April 12, 2012 with the composer conducting. This fanfare is based on a motive from the Jesuit motto Ad majorem Dei gloriam ("To the greater glory of God") and is based on the notes A, D, G. The fanfare opens with timpani, a tintinnabulum of bells and brass, and wolf calls in the horns. A martial hymn tune appears which evokes the soldierly order of Ignatius Loyola's early years. The work closes with a rhythmic ostinato based on the words "Fight, fight, fight, ye men of the South!" The composer is a graduate of Loyola and received an honorary Doctor of Music degree in 2005.
