My Box downloads are now working! Here, again (in two parts), is the Antique Pops Hour, No. 2!

(Note: When I first posted this, my Box downloads weren't happening.  I contacted Box, and they fixed the issue.  Took a while, because they neglected to get back to me at first, but Box is a fantastic service and my account is free, so I'd be a jerk to complain.)

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.
