Tombstone Tuesday A Music Composer

At my last visit to Allegheny Cemetery this past July I came across this tombstone which caught my attention because I felt it was unique.  It has a few lines of music notes written on the stone.  It is a large stone and is located in the "Millionaires Alley" section.  I did a little searching about Adolph M Foerster and found he was a music professor and also a composer.  I am assuming the music on his marker is something he composed himself.  Never learned to read music myself but would love to hear the tune on this tombstone.

Here is a close of the music notes

If you would like to see a picture of Adolph there is one on Find A Grave.
