Come Sweet Death Virgil Fox arrangement...

Postby B777Captain » Mon Oct 08, 2018 2:35 pm

Greetings from Las Vegas!

For some reason, as I'm getting older now I have an interest in learning Virgil's arrangement of this piece but can't seem to find the actual arrangement. The sheet music I'm finding are very short versions of this piece and as I recall, Virgil's playing of the Wannamaker is quite a bit longer than just 2 pages of sheet music. , they are nothing close to the actual piece he would play on the Wannamaker et al type organs.
Would anyone have a source or internet sight I can contact to buy this sheet music of Virgil's arrangement of this piece.

Thank you for any guidance in my quest.

The link in the previous post is correct and contains the version heard on the Wannamaker recordings, but you should know, it's only three pages in length. It's the Largo tempo that stretches it out to nine minutes performance time.
