Shawondasee (The South Wind) Waltz (1910)

Vocal Range


So is it Shawondasse or Shawondasee? The cover has it one way, and the title page another. In Longfellow's poem Song of Hiawatha the south wind is listed as “Shawondasee, fat and lazy,” so we've taken that spelling for our edition. This is a waltz of only moderate difficulty that is quite fun to play despite its rather boring computer-generated rendition.
