I was able to get the full set of pages for this music pretty early on. I always like to hear and see what a subject may have heard and seen when I am researching. It makes for some strange CD purchases . . .
This particular piece was written before Colonel Ellsworth was killed. It was written for his 1860 U.S. Zouave Cadets tour, so he may have heard it, or even had it played at a performance.
The Quickstep itself is sort of like the foxtrot, but with a lot more syncopation. According to my reading, it should be light and airy, which is what this music is.
I am lucky enough to work with a talented person who plays the piano, in addition to teaching gym and coaching our middle school choir. She graciously took a look at the music and pronounced it "doable."
She will be recording it for me in the next couple of weeks, and I will put it here as soon as I figure out the technology.
Dance on, Colonel Ellsworth!!
