The musicians of the French regimental orchestras played a large role mainly only in parades, in battles, unlike Russian musicians, they risked their lives extremely rarely; only in case of necessity and direct order, were the orchestras in the second line playing various melodies in battle to raise the morale of the soldiers. Melodies performed by French military musicians were quite different from the melodies of Russian musicians. If in the Russian army, orchestras played mostly solemn marches and cantatas, the French army marched on the march and in battle with melodies from vaudevilles or folk songs.
