"The Wanderer" Alto Sax Solo - Dion

This is my first posted question, so I apoligize if it is not presented properly. Three years ago,  I began teaching myself the alto saxophone. Now that I am 63 and playing easy old melodies on my cabin porch, There is one solo I cannot seem to find anywhere. The "Wanderer" by Dion & the Belmonts. I learned that it did exsist at one time as a solo for the alto sax. Does anyone know where I can find the sheet music. It is widely available for the tenor sax, but not the alto. I am not that proficiant to change the notes from tenor to alto. Thanks for your time, old chef.

Best Hamelin Recordings

Marc-Andre Hamelin is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest virtuosi alive, and has recorded all manner of pieces. I would like to enquire as to the personal preferences of this group with regard to this Canadian master?

My own favourite recordings of his:

Alkan's Symphonie pour Piano Seul; Concerto pour piano seul; Le Festin d'Esope.
Liszt's Sonata H-moll
Saint-Saens' Piano concerto no. 2, third movemnet.

That last piece he performs unassailably.
