Flowers Record Image

The Victor Monarch Record above is the first appearance of the famous "Nipper" trademark on a Victor record label. January 1902. The recording is "The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring, from THE MIKADO, sung by Lyric Trio - Grace Spencer, Soprano, Harry MacDonough, Tenor and William F. Hooley, Baritone. Click here or on the photo to listen to or download the MP3 file.

I'm currently working on a fifteenth anniversary edition of my transfer of the 1926 Mikado. Click here to listen to the same song from the 1926 HMV album performed by Derek Oldham, Henry Lytton, Leo Sheffield, and Aline Davis.

We are introducing a catalog of sheet music of new transcriptions for wind instruments. Our initial offerings are woodwind quintets (flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon). A synthesized audio preview of each composition is offered on this page. (The truth is ALL of our sheet music is currently offered for sale at $0.00; so, go to the online store and "buy" it!)

Here are a couple of tracks that I recently transferred from records by Ernest Lough, boy chorister b. 1911, that I consider treasures. The first is from Mendelssohn's "Elijah." The second, also by Mendelssohn is a hymn for soprano. (These were posted previously but had some speed variations due to a bad turntable belt. The new transfers linked below were made 29 April 2016.) I hope you enjoy listening and/or downloading:

Hear ye, Israel HMV B2627 26 September 1927

Hear My Prayer HMV C1329 30 March 1928
