A wind band playing in C major never sounds quite as joyous as it should, so the original-key rule is forgotten here in the interests of comfort. Bar 47 looks odd but it's just as the composer wrote it and it works both times. This version is of the march only without either of the less inspiring trios. The audio demonstrates the new pitch, which sounds just as comfortable as Mendelssohn's orchestra was at the old one.
