Green Hills of Tyrol Waltz from Rossini's William Tell. It shows up as the Cinderella Waltz in a number of mid 19th century tune books.
Nice - Funny how the "Green Hills" has also become a standard tune for Scottish pipe bands. You never know where your music is going to end up.
Thanks, Ian it does appear to be derived from the same tune. I have seen about a half a dozen versions of this tune in tune books from the 1840's to the 1870's. Most often it is the four part version in the key of G, close to what I've done here. I only seen have one where it is actually attributed to Rossini. The Complete Preceptor for the Accordeon by Elias Howe, Jr. (1843), though has it as 2 parts in the key of C.
