  • Door Latch Quickstep

    From the manuscript band books of the Manchester Cornet Band (founded in 1854), second set, no. 15.

  • Lilly Bell Quickstep

    From the Brass Band Journal (New York: Firth, Pond & Co., 1854). The trio of this march is an up-tempo version of a sentimental ballad, "Lilly Bell," by Charles Mueller, published in 1853 by the same firm.

  • Free and Easy

    From the manuscript band books of the Manchester Cornet Band (founded in 1854), second set, no. 82. The medley consists of six tunes, which are identified in the first E-flat soprano part: "Free and Easy," "Neapolitan," "Get Out of the Wilderness," "Wake Up Mose," "Good Bye," and "Crow Out Shanghai." "Free and Easy" must have been a tune so well known in 1861 that ...

  • Captain Finch's Quickstep

    We know of no published version; the probable date of composition is sometime between 1850 and 1860. This arrangement, presumably Grafulla's, is from the manuscript band books of the Third New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry, first set, no. 48, in the Music Division, Library of Congress. They are frequently referred to as the "Port Royal Band Books" because it was on Port Royal Island, S.C., ...

    From the manuscript band books of the Manchester Cornet Band (founded in 1854), first set, no. 17. This is a curious composition. While we do not know its date, it was probably written not later than 1848, the year Zachary Taylor was elected President on the strength of his brilliant military success in the Mexican War, and despite the efforts of his commander, fellow ...

  • 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). This so-called solo instrument was most often used melodically to double the E-flat soprano saxhorns or cornets at the octave below. It was, therefore, a popular melodic ...

    From the manuscript band books of the Manchester Cornet Band (founded in 1854), second set, no. 67. Piano arrangement published in America (Troy, N.Y.: Edward P. Jones, 1859). Downing's arrangement is in the common band key of E-flat, while the piano version is in F. The piccolo part has been added. Although it is not certain that the particular Henry Farmer who wrote these ...
