St Louis Waltz sheet music

This post is sheet music for St Louis Waltz, which I recorded as Death Valley Waltz.

MP3 from the MIDI
Sibelius source file

I found the song in a field manual for musicians in the American civil war. That field manual is “The Drummer’s and Fifers’ Guide” by Bruce and Emmet. This guide is still around because it is used by the subculture of civil war re-enactors.

The original is this antique manuscript:

St Louis Waltz in Bruce and Emmet's guide

For a contemporary musician that manuscript is a bit hard to read and lacks chord changes, so I wrote out a new version:

St Louis Waltz typeset, arranged, transcribed by Lucas Gonze
