Henry Worrall's solo guitar instrumental "Storm Waltzes" is included here within a series of pieces for solo guitar published by J.L. Peters & Bro. of St. Louis, Missouri. This copy of that collection includes only "Storm Waltzes." This piece contains several movements, including: "A Life on the Ocean Wave," "Waltz," and "Sturm Gallop." In the early twentieth century, Worrall's popular guitar instrumentals played a key role in the development of the guitar styles of southern rural folk musicians and country and blues musical idioms. Worrall moved to Topeka, Kansas, in 1868 where he died in 1902.
