Near Edinburgh. Scotland.
The waltz ‘Sunset On The St. Lawrence’ was composed by Maxime Heller about 1910.
As a young engineer, in 1962, I sailed up the St. Lawrence and into the Great Lakes. Volkswagen Beetles were shipped in and grain from the vast silos at Chicago was shipped out. Memories include the incredibly long bulk carriers which plied the lakes, which could only have operated in these relatively calm inland waters and Scottish migrants who would come to the canal locks to see the ship flying the Scottish flag.
'Sunset On The St. Lawrence’ entered the Scottish idiom through being recorded by such players as Jim Johnstone. My arrangement and recording, here, is part of my attempt to combat the downturn in musical activity as well ‘keep the wheels on the bus’ as long as possible.

You come up with some beautiful melodies Boxplayer ( as was the destiny waltz also ) although I think 100% acoustic accordion would have been even better, but that is just my personal preference. Did you have a reason for midi-ing the stradella bass?
