Description
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 instrument but was rarely heard alone as it is here. print | Modern edition created by Library of Congress staff member David Arbury. Transcribed from original band books. Print (Form).
