Published in 1909, music for “By the Light of the Silvery Moon” was written by Gus Edwards, and lyrics by Edward Madden. The song has been used in numerous movies and television programs and, despite its age, continues to be popular. This version is written in a style that suggests the song’s turn-of-the-last-century origin, including plenty of ragtime-like turns. Your trombone player will love all the smears, and your audience just may sing along.

This arrangement was completed in 2013, and performance time runs about 2 minutes, 36 seconds. Contact the arranger, Les Smith, at For more arrangements by Les, enter "Sweetwater Brass Press" (without the quotation marks) in the SheetMusicPlus search box.

    Disappointed with this. Although the familiar melody and harmony sections are nicely written, there are some bridges that are openly scored and quite awkward.
