HP-85 and the William Tell Overture

The HP-85 Standard Pac included a program called COMPZR which allowed the user to edit and play music composed of single notes using the internal speaker and the BEEP command.

The program came with a data file which contained instructions to play an adaptation of the final part of Rossini's William Tell Overture.
