About This Item

The Civil War Ballroom: music for a Midcentury Victorian Ball

Composer: Bill Mattheisen

This collection supplies enough sheet music for two full-length Victorian balls: over 70 different tunes, including all those from The Civil War Ballroom CD. Harmony parts are provided for over half the music, plus trumpet parts for seven pieces. All music is from mid-nineteenth century sources, with source information for each piece. The introduction includes notes on how to play the music, ideas for instrumentation and sources for additional music and information. 91pp, Spiralbound.

"THE CIVIL WAR BALLROOM BAND BOOK is a remarkably informative and complete resource for reenactors, history teachers, dance organizers and Victoriana enthusiasts. It's a great collection of authentic dance music, with quotes from dancing masters of the period. It even has clear instructions on how to play the music, call the dances and organize your event to best achieve the joy and the spirit of an authentic Civil War ball."
- Jay Ungar, composer of "Ashokan Farewell"
