View Full Version : Knauff's Virginia Reels

Jul-15-2010, 2:55pm
I have recently come across a number of references to George P. Knauff's collection of tunes called Virginia Reels, which was published in 1839. Does anyone know if this is available online in a PDF version or if it is available anywhere in print? It seems to have some pretty good old timey fiddle tunes in it and I think it would be both fun and educational to play through these tunes.

Still wondering if anyone can give me any insights to this?

Hi, Charlie. It looks like there is a copy of one of the Knauff collections in the Levy Sheet Music collection at Johns Hopkins (http://levysheetmusic.mse.jhu.edu/levy-cgi/display.cgi?id=041.123.000;pages=7;range=0-6). And a second one here (http://levysheetmusic.mse.jhu.edu/levy-cgi/condisp.cgi?id=041.121). These look pretty interesting.

Thanks Barry. This is helpful and very interesting. It would be good to see these in print again, if for no other reason that from an historical perspective.
