The Antique Pops Hour, No. 2 (1901-1928)--Frank Bridge, Theodore Moses Tobani, more!

Henry Carey's 18th-century hit, Sally in Our Alley, to the tune of "The Country Lass" (above).  We'll be hearing Frank Bridge's 1916 arrangement of same.

            Ethelbert Nevin, c. 1890, impersonating Jimmy Stewart (above).  Probably best known for his songs The Rosary and Mighty Lak' a Rose.  We'll be hearing a 1926 recording of his wonderful Narcissus, from Water Scenes (1891).

  English composer Frank Bridge (1879-1941) (above), who taught composition to Benjamin Britten.

                  German composer Theodore Moses Tobani (1855-1933) (above), who gave us Hearts and Flowers (1893), using a tune by Hungarian composer Alphons Czibulka.  Remember the "world's smallest violin playing My Heart Bleeds for You" joke?  Hearts and Flowers.

All 78s from my collection, and ripped and restored by me.

Hi, Garrido.

I uploaded it a second time. Let me know if it's working now. Otherwise, I may have to split it into two parts....

Thanks for letting me know, and sorry about the problem.

garrido said...

sorry lee it is still not correct, try something else.
nice selection too!

Lee Hartsfeld said...

Hi. I split in into two parts--hopefully, that will help. I'm doing a test download right now, but I have Windstream DSL, so it could be a couple days....

Lee Hartsfeld said...

Darn. It looks like a glitch at the Box site--I tried Bev's PC, and the Box download function didn't work. If the problem is still happening tomorrow, I'll email Box.
