For today, new rips of my standard Easter 78s: The famous Robert Lowry hymn Christ Arose! as recorded by the Haydn Quartet in 1908 (with no !) and the Shannon Quartet (a.k.a. Shannon Four) in 1925, and Jesus Lives!, recorded in 1922 by the Trinity Choir. The tune for Jesus Lives! was written by Henry J. Gauntlett in 1852. Meanwhile, the Shannon Quartet became the Reverlers in 1925.
The rest of the tracks are me at the organ (actually, my Casio WK-3800), playing Easter hymns. I tossed this together at the last minute, meaning last night. Total rush job.
I play two Jesus Lives! tunes--the Gauntlett music used by the Trinity Quartet, and a 1921 tune by Andrew L. Skoog, who was born in Sweden and died in Minnesota.
