Wagner: Siegfried's Funeral March

As my idea of fun, I thought I’d type up the music for Siegfried’s Funeral March - partly to hear what NotePerformer would make of it, and partly as an exercise in music that’s outside my usual rep.

Also, someone was talking recently about the utility of having sample scores for testing speed issues, etc.

Anyway, here are the notes. I’ve not really done much with the layout. One problem is that Dorico only condenses the first instrument of a Single Player, and I’ve put all the different transpositions of Horns, Trumpets, etc, into one Player each. I leave better solutions as an exercise to the reader. :grin:

I used the Eulenberg score that’s on IMSLP, and consulted the Peters full opera score to check for errors and clarifications (of which there were several).

Bravissimo, W NotePerformer! :wave:

Thank you very much. I heard it on my PC in Dorico and NP. Really sounds good.
