Another good composition by Wenrich, it's a very tuneful example of early ragtime and worth a listen and play. The score and midi are in the library...Steve.…See More

"Hi Steve, Do you have an arrangement of Solace (A Mexican Serenade)?. I just love that tune of Joplin and I would like to try it. Many people know the last section due The Sting, but the other sections are also great"
