Unknown DeKleist Tune
Unknown Tune Played On DeKleist Barrel Organ
by Andy Park (120828 MMDigest)

Hey everyone,  If any MMDer could identify this tune, it will be great.  It was played on an old DeKleist organ playing its original barrel.  It was at the carousel in "19th Century Willowbrook Village" museum in Newfield, Maine.  You could see a girl riding on it at

Note that the tune is barely heard throughout the video.  I've listened to it several times, figuring out the notes, and then transcribed with MIDI using Quick Windows Sequencer.  I'll send a MIDI file for the MMD Archives in a separate email.  Try listening to it yourself, and compare my MIDI version to the video above.
