Traditional Songs of the Zunis

was published by Wa-Wan Press in 1904. It contained four Zuni melodies that were trascribed and harmonized by Carlos Troyer. The most recognized melody of the set is Zuni Sunrise Call, which many different arrangements have been recorded, both as a song and as a flute melody. Troyer's arrangement seems more elaborate than the contemporary recordings which seem to be contained with the boundaries of page 11. Other publications that have included Troyer's work, seem to only cite the melody of page 11.

The melody on page 11 transposes very easily to the NAF and is the basis of the original Zuni FluteTree version. Pages 12 and 13 are more problematic in this regard because it does not fit the range and scale of contemporary NAF and require some arranging to fit.
