  • See that my graveís kept green

    1 digital file. 2:14 | Gus Williams, an important performer during the 1870s, was best known as a "Dutch act"--a comedian with an act in German dialect. However, his most successful song is a straightforward sentimental one dealing with that most affecting of scenes for the nineteenth-century audience, the death-bed. (This particular death-bed is unusual in being that of a spouse rather than of ...

  • Rescue the perishing

    1 digital file. :50 | In the 1870s, hymn tunes tended to be far more closely wedded to a particular set of words than in earlier periods; composers no longer wrote tunes to abstract rhythmic patterns, singable to any text in that particular meter. Thus, W. H. Doane's stirring tune for "Rescue the Perishing" is wedded to Fanny J. Crosby's words. The performers are ...

  • Grandfather's clock

    1 digital file. 1:14 | Henry Clay Work's 1876 song "Grandfather's Clock" is indisputably the greatest of furniture songs. It avoids sentimentality by its strong story-line and by the humor which moves the story along. (Note the stream of puns in the later verses.) It is, in fact, because of this song that free-standing floor clocks are called "grandfather clocks." Two years later Work ...
