Hymne du Panthéon - Cherubini

Dear all,

Best wishes for 2017, may it be filled with Beethoven's delights !

I am trying to find a recorded version of Cherubini's Hymne du Panthéon, which, it is claimed, has been used by our dear Ludwig for his 5th Symphony. Scores, yes, I can find those, but no recorded version so far.

Also am wondering whether his Hymne à la Victoire may be the same thing, but I don't recognise anything 5th-like in there, when hearing it.

Thanks for any help...

Albert
PS: the Michael Zimmer thread in google groups on this topic does not get me any further either, in case you want to send me this link....

Sorry to hear you're still having no luck in locating this. Why not grab the bull by the horns and try to contact Sir John Eliot Gardiner directly about this? I think this may be possible at this site: http://intermusica.co.uk/artist/Sir-John-Eliot-Gardiner

I just listened to the hymn on Spotify, but couldn't find any similiarities with Beethoven's 5th, actually it was quite boring and weak in the instrumentation - no comparison to some of his great overtures and the outstanding 2 Requiems.

I listened also to the Hymne a la Victoire, which is a little better ...
