The end of a Saga.
I first heard this piece on a CD of the ALLANTOWN Band in 1990.
I found the music at the old Sou†hern Music store and discovered there was no score. Sousa wrote this in 1886 when the 1st Trumpet part served as a score.
At that time I was using FINALE 1990 on a early Apple computer. I learned Finale and this piece at the same time. For the next 17 years I have worked on this piece up to the point where I would run out of memory. I would put it away ever hopeful that my next Mac could do it.
Finally, with FINALE O7 and a Macintel I have finished the piece using
In the playback I reduced low brass to 20 on the mixer and they're still too loud.
For Randy etal, maybe you can offer suggestions that work using only a computer.
P.S. I have made a new Finale file & redone the instruments using a mix of GPI, JAZZ & CMB.
