  • O Summer Night from Don Pasquale

    A popular tune found in many collections of the time, including Stephen Foster's Social Orchestra (1854), it serves, in this simple arrangement, as a good demonstration piece for the solo E-flat tenorhorn (sometimes called the E-flat alto).

    We know of no published version; the probable date of composition is sometime between 1850 and 1860.

They are frequently referred to as the "Port Royal Band Books" because it was on Port Royal Island, S.C., ...
