Louis Meyer (d 1897) came to St Louis, Missouri, in 1880, from New Orleans,
Louisiana, to conduct their opera house orchestra. Prior to that, he wrote
many songs and piano pieces and published them himself in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,
on the same street as F A North, the publisher of this piece. He was accomplished
on all the stringed instruments and conducted the St Louis Orchestra during
the summers of 1886 and 1887. He was chosen as a member of Wagner’s
orchestra in Zurich, Switzerland, and regarded as an excellent composer of
orchestral pieces and as an arranger for string ensembles and military brass
bands. He arranged The
Open Diapason March for brass band in addition to the organ solo and
duet versions. This restoration of both organ versions was made possible by
Rosalind Mohnsen. Easy.
