A Donation, and Musical Discovery


Thanks to the folks at parlorsongs.com, we’ve received 20 presentation copies of sheet music from 1900-1903, selected especially for the Suite, and through the good offices of our former, and much lamented music tutor, David Trippett, we were able to record some of these pieces last May. Check out our website page, The Songs FDR Knew, to listen to all ten recordings. (Or, you can click on the cover to the left so hear one of my favorites.) Either way, it’s really amazing to hear these forgotten melodies echo out of the past again after 100 years of silence.
