Faerie's Aire and Death Waltz

The Death Waltz has been around for a while but it is hilarious. With instructions such as "rotate embouchure", "release the penguins" and "like a dirigible", this is what music looked like to me in college. I also found a "second page" to the Waltz that may have dubious origins. There is some discussion here about the second page and the actual existence of a concertina choir called for in the piece.

Thank you Sue.

Awesome! I've been looking for this for ages.

I cleaned it up and made it suitable for 8.5 x 11.

It's located here

The copyright notice seems to have been conveniently left off of the many images of this put up for distribution on the web. John Stump, who created it, owns the 1991 copyright and reserves all rights to distribution of this creative work.

Some parts are playable by a superhuman, but others would literally have to be played by someone with like, 6 hands. See example, the pyramid of whole notes

I'm trying to learn this, although it seems impossible. I have two measures. I love the song.
