15 minutes
Classical music

Death of Custer is a Descriptive piece for military and concert band. Please listen to the mp3 although it is a very very old Edison Cylinder recording and the only recording available for this tune. Feel free to email me questions. I am starting with a very low price in order for you all to enjoy this newly found masterpiece. Also sorry for the repeats playing weird in the file. It includes the following scenes: Sioux war dance before battle Custer’s Cavalry on march towards Sioux camp Approach of Cavalry with band playing the Red, White and Blue Indians Responding with their custumary war music Little Big Horn Battle Scene where Custer lost his life Custer shot and mortally wounded Indians Rejoicing after Battle: Scalp Dance Burial of Custer by General bentine and cavarly with muffled drum Nearer My God To Thee
