Melody-Only Transcription (PDF)


78rpm record (streaming audio here)


Despite having "waltz" in the title, Waltz The Hall is a breakdown, not a waltz.  The title refers to a square dance call.  According to this site, when "waltz the hall" is called, one promenades one's partner outside of the set.

The recording consists of six repetitions of the tune.  The melody is well-expressed the first time through, and subsequent repetitions over little variation.

This tune has no comments.
