Composed by Emile Benoit. Note that on his album Emile’s Dream, Benoit only played the B part twice through, instead of what I think is the fairly standard three times through today.

Errr…. well, when I submitted the tune, it had a third ending to indicate to repeat to B part three times. As far as I know, that is how most people play the tune these days.

And hey, thanks to the new system I’m able to fix the ABC to have the AABBB structure it had when I first entered it in here! I am really, really liking the new Session.
