Music for a Manic Monday – Old School

March 7, 2011

I had to take a mental health holiday.  Forgive my absence.  While I was recovering, I uncovered some music belonging to my great-grandmother.  Perhaps a photo would have been better, because the scan just doesn’t convey the old-timeyness of the music.  This song was published in 1906, right around the time that my great-grandmother was a light-opera singer.  The sheet music itself was folded twice and has pen scribbles (perhaps from the late teens, early 1920’s when my grandmother was tiny) so naturally if I wanted to preserve it, I’d have to scan it.  Also, I’m planning on taking this with me to my next voice lesson (whenever that is) because I’ll need new material, and why not this?  Its in my range, beautiful, and actually means something to me.

Hope everyone out there in blog-land is doing well.  I’ve been keeping up with all your wonderful blogs, and I can tell many of you have already contracted Spring fever.  I’m “suffering” right along with you.  Only a few more days until Winter is officially over!

    >Cool! Thanks for scanning it. I noticed the "Dedicated to Miss Sue Smith" at the top, which intrigued me because my cousin's name is Sue Smith! She lives in Charlotte. 🙂

    >Glad to hear you're feeling better! So nice to sing pieces that are actually sentimental too.

    >I don't know if I'm feeling any better, but perhaps I'm dealing with it better? Depression is a bitch. But thank you for your kind words Nancy! I can't wait to bring this to my lesson.Sabrina, that's so neat about your cousin! And I promise a scan of the front soon.
