Farewell To The Catskills

I heard this improbably beautiful waltz that Joannie Madden has composed. I searched for the sheet music here, but NO, the only thing that was here was the title of the page with their CD ‘Heart of the Home’ which had been added by ‘Connor Hickey’ two years ago. Then I started listening to it and writing it down - and it was certainly a heavy job for me, it took a lot of time, but now it’s here! Likewise the video with the Ladies <3

Great job and thanks for transposing my tune! I hope everybody enjoys playing it! Joanie

Farewell To The Catskills, X:2

Aaarrgg…. I discovered some minor errors - but very important errors to get fixed - in my first setting and now I have added chords too. I’m definitely NOT a chord person and of course they are not the same as ‘Cherish’ are playing, but I think they work, they do not hurt my ears.

I would have deleted the first setting, but I could not figure it out, maybe Jeremy will be so kind to do that when he gets a little spare time …. Thanks

Re: Farewell To The Catskills

I note the second part in the above transcriptions is missing a repeat of its first strain; and the chords are a bit different, according to the video. The dots can’t convey the swing of the tune, which sounds like an American country waltz.
