This essay deals with the musical analysis of A Ben Amet, of the alcoyano composer Antonio Pérez Verdú (1875-1932), considered the first Moorish march of the history for the Celebration of Moors and Christians. An analysis detailed of the most excellent parameters at musical level has been made as they are melody, the rhythm, the harmony, the form, the instrumentation and the expression, thus detaching, a final musical structure in constituent elements smaller than forms that whole and explaining the functions that carry out inside the same one. Also an historical approach is made on the origin of Festera Music and the birth of the Christian march like third musical sort for the Festival of Moors and Christians.

The Music of Moors and Christians, also called Festera Music, is a present reality in the musical life of the Valencian Community and a heritage that has enriched the original repertoire for band since it presents some own contents that print character to and make it different from any other musical genre. This type of compound music specifically for the Celebration is classified in three different musical forms: Christian pasodobles, marches moors and marches that provide us innumerable material to work with the students. The Moorish march is a composition of slow rhythm more of 56 crotchets per minute with an Arab or eastern melody. So we'll discuss the musicology perspective why is the first Moorish march in the history of the music of Moors and Christians and remove the light such as important composition at the Celebration.
