Today we celebrate the birth of photographer William P. Gottlieb, known for his iconic photos of leading jazz musicians in the 30s and 40s. His subjects included Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, and Thelonious Monk--just to name a few!

Here Gottlieb (right) is pictured with Duke Ellington at WINX radio station in Washington, DC, around 1940.

Happy birthday, Robert Burns!!--AKA the Ploughman Poet and widely considered to be the national poet of Scotland. Burns was at pains throughout the latter-half of his career to connect Scottish poems and texts with Scottish tunes, the main mission of The Scots Musical Museum (1787-1803). This piece, “My Bonnie Bonnie Dearie”, better known as “Ca’ the yowes,” is a celebration of the pastoral Scotland Burns so loved. Calling in the ewes amongst the heather with a Scots maid at his side, Burns ends with:

“Fair and lovely as thou art, thou hast stolen my very heart; I can die, but cannot part, my bonnie dearie.”

A fun one for Star Trek Fans! 🖖 Gene Roddenberry's secret lyrics to the Star Trek theme....

Raise your hand if you're a Star Trek fan. 🖖✋ Here's an interesting piece of trivia for you from the U.S. Copyright Office, which is housed at the Library of Congress: Alexander Courage's original theme song was submitted for copyright under his name on November 7, 1966. Fifty days later, the Copyright Office received a second registration for the same music — with two additions. Beneath Courage’s name was that of series creator Gene Roddenberry in a different ink and handwriting. Below that, lyrics had been scrawled alongside the music. The lyrics never were used in the show and weren’t intended to be. However, because they were added to the copyright registration, Roddenberry received a co-writer credit and 50% of the song royalties.

Mary Cardwell Dawson (1894-1962) was a music educator, choir director, opera director, and administrator who worked tirelessly to create opportunities for African American creative artists and demonstrate those artists’ value to the arts community at large. She founded The Cardwell School of Music in Pittsburgh, as well as the Cardwell Dawson Choir, which Dawson molded into a renowned, prize-winning ensemble. Dawson served as the president of the National Association of Negro Musicians and launched the National Negro Opera Company.

Behind the Photo: Ella and Dizzy, 1947

According to photographer William Gottlieb, Ella Fitzgerald wasn’t supposed to sing that night. She had come to the club on Fifty-second St to support her boyfriend, Ray Brown, who was playing the bass in Dizzy Gillespie’s band. However, she was convinced to come to the mic. Eyeing the perfect shot, Gottlieb motioned to Gillespie, who moved into position and assumed an “angelic look"...and the perfect photo was born!

Bronislava Nijinska was born Jan 8, 1891. Not only was she a genius dancer, but an innovative choreographer, pushing the boundaries of ballet in the 20th century.

These photos come from the 1921 Ballet Russes production of Tchaikovsky’s ballet, The Sleeping Princess, for which she danced and choreographed additional dances. The first photo is of Nijinska in her Hummingbird Princess costume. The second includes her handwritten choreographic notes.

Name a more iconic duo!

Here is a photo of composers Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein, dated around 1940. Copland often served as a mentor to the younger Bernstein during his junior's early days as a composer--before their relationship blossomed into a lifelong friendship.

In one letter from 1938, on the eve of World War II, Copland comforts 19-year-old Bernstein, dejected about the state of art and the world:

"As for your general 'disappointment' in Art, Man and Life I can only advise perspective, perspective, and yet more perspective. This is only 1938. Man has a long time to go. Art is quite young. Life has its own dialectic. Aren't you always curious to see what tomorrow will bring?"

Everyone knows—or at least kinda knows--Robert Burns’ version of “Auld lang syne,” sung annually around the world to usher in the new year. And just about everyone knows that it’s about old friends and good times...but did you know that Burns’ supposedly old Scottish ballad was actually a new piece in text and tune?

Earlier the text was a lover’s lament—and even a bit racy by early 18th-century standards! Allan Ramsay’s 1724 lyric proclaims that “sunk in love…We’ll please ourselves with mutual charms, As we did lang syne.” He continues with a “Winter Wonderland” conclusion of cozy love on a cold day.

So here’s to an Auld version of “Auld lang syne” as you’re kissing in 2023!

Below: “Auld lang syne” in The Scots Musical Museum, v.1 (Edinburgh, 1787-8), Library of Congress: M1746.A2 J68 (https://lccn.loc.gov/unk84131869)

"What are You Doing New Year's Eve?"--the holiday classic that wasn't supposed to be

Ella Fitzgerald recorded Frank Loesser's "What are You Doing New Year's Eve?" on her 1960 album "Ella Wishes You a Swingin' Christmas." Many artists followed on Christmas albums of their own, including The Carpenters, Patti Labelle, and Rod Stewart. However, the song was never supposed to be a holiday tune in the first place!

According to Susan Loesser's biography of her father, the lyrics refer to a promise in the distant future: "Maybe it’s much too early in the game—What are you doing New Year’s, New Year’s Eve?” Frank Loesser was always annoyed people sang it as a holiday song. (Loesser, 1993, "A Most Remarkable Fella, p.61")

Still, with it's melancholy melody and Ella's rich, dreamy vocals, we think listening to it is the perfect thing to do New Year's, New Year's Eve. :)

When was “What Child is This?” first set to the tune of Greensleeves?

By the early 19th century, Christmas caroling had died out in the UK. This prompted composer Sir John Stainer (& many others) to creatively revive the tradition, combining old tunes with newer lyrics. Greensleeves was an old tune—popular in the 1580s, it was rife with accusations of betrayal and sedition. Stainer was happily unaware of this when he set William Chatterton Dix’s text “What Child is This?” to it, creating one of the most beloved “traditional” carols of the season!

The first time “What Child is This?” appeared to the tune of Greensleeves was in the collection Christmas Carols New & Old [London, 1871?], with music edited by Sir John Stainer. Here's our copy!

Happy Holidays from the American Folklife Center! In this blog post, you can enjoy our 2022 holiday mummers' play.

https://blogs.loc.gov/folklife/2022/12/happy-holidays-afcs-2022-video-mummers-play/?loclr=fbafc

As you may know, every year, in the week of the Library's holiday party, staff members of the American Folklife Center put our research and performance skills into play, bringing collections to life in a dramatic performance that tours the halls of the Library of Congress. Dressed in costumes that range from striking to silly, we sing, act, rhyme, and dance for other Library staff members and for members of the public. Our performances are based on the ancient tradition of mumming, which has come down to our archive in the form of play scripts, songs, photos, and other items collected in the early twentieth century. This year's play was called "The Flute of Ice: A Mumming from the Vault. " At the link, find the video, the script, explanatory notes, and still photos from the performance and dress rehearsal.

As the eight nights of Hanukkah proceed, it is only fitting that we remember Handel's oratorio "Judas Maccabeus" which tells the story of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire. Although the Hanukkah miracle of the lights is not part of the oratorio, it presents the historical context during which that event took place. Furthermore, the tune of the most famous chorus from Handel's work, "See, the conquering hero comes" was later repurposed for the Hanukkah song, "Hava Narima." So, chag sameach, Mr. Handel!

Mumming is Today!

This year’s play is called The Flute of Ice: A Mumming from the Vault. It’s 1816 and President Madison visits the North Pole Library to deposit a flute made of ice! But soon Father Christmas, the North Pole Librarian, and Dr. Joculus have to deal with dueling monsters. Will their celebrity guest get to play the flute before it melts? The American Folklife Center’s annual holiday play incorporates traditional songs, music, and folk drama from Library of Congress collections for a zany and fun time in the Great Hall.

Did you know that the 1954 film “White Christmas” was initially supposed to star Fred Astaire alongside Bing Crosby? After Astaire dropped out, the part was handed to Donald O’Connor, who was unable to film due to illness. In waltzed the charismatic Danny Kaye, giving an iconic performance of “The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing” with Vera-Ellen, among other gems from the holiday classic.

Here is a photograph of Kaye and Vera-Ellen in Santa Claus costumes in a scene from "White Christmas.” Check out this photo and other digitized items from the Danny Kaye and Sylvia Fine Collection through the Library of Congress Digital Collections portal!

In celebration of National Deviled Egg Day (November 2nd), enjoy the song "A Hard Boiled Egg" by Austrian/American composer Ludwig Engländer from his 1897 musical "A Round of Pleasure." The surprisingly philosophical lyrics begin as follows: "Oh life is full of boiling water and man is but the egg that's in it. And time his hourglass is holding and keeps him boiling by the minute..."

October 11, 1882, was the birthday of African-American composer Robert Nathaniel Dett (1882-1943). Dett was one of his day's leading composers and is remembered primarily for his excellent choral compositions. Below is his musical setting of Katherine Lee Bates' poem "America the Beautiful." The more famous tune of "America, the Beautiful" was composed by Samuel A. Ward (1848-1903) as a hymn tune titled "Materna" which was first published as an accompaniment to Bates' poem in 1910. See the full sheet music for Dett's composition here https://www.loc.gov/item/2013562492/ and read more about Nathaniel Dett on the Library of Congress website. https://www.loc.gov/item/ihas.200038840/

August 8, 2022, is designated as International Cat Day! Celebrate by knowing that for a brief five-day run in December of 1907, The West End Theatre in New York City hosted a huge flop titled "The Cat and the Fiddle" with words by Lincoln Carter and music by Clarence Sinn. The combination of this crazy sheet music cover and the fact that part of the story is set in "an Egyptian Cave under the Catskills" makes me think a revival is absolutely necessary. Any takers? Where's Max Bialystock when we need him?

50 years ago today, Leonard Bernstein conducted his 1,000th New York Philharmonic performance, an historic milestone! 🎉

For this occasion, Bernstein conducted Mahler's "Resurrection" Symphony No. 2. Bernstein dedicated the concert “with affection and gratitude to all my Philharmonic colleagues, onstage and off, with whom I have shared three decades of joyful music-making."

The New York Times critic James R. Oestreich wrote: "As the two timpanists whaled away in the clamor of the finale, the head of a timpani stick flew off and sailed into the audience. That added bit of fireworks seemed wholly of a piece with the choral and orchestral tumult conjured by a master, and this remains, of the many candidates, my favorite moment from the Bernstein years."

Dearest Senator Madam,
You first must petition for my statement case of prisoner of war and then, I should follow behind your goal forever.
just because I do wish to win my case, let me write a new page of American History with my white lens and honest pen. Let me offer to our offspring to letting them exactly realize the Vietnam War when the discrimination against the national colo racist in which it is higher more than American Human Rights. That is why the Vietnam War was lost all by the disloyalty, non just cause, and injustice power while the American leaderships who have been sat on their constitution and law. Therefore, he must struggle for justice as a prisoner of war without having fearless.
Best wishes

In his analysis on January 6th,
A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed when the American President is Commander-in-chief of Militia's People. In the meanwhile, the President and the public have known about the general election of 2020 which has had frauds. As a result, former President Trump must carry out the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, the Commander-in-chief has had the right to call for his militias- people to protect the rule of law. So, President Trump could be a famous revolutionary. In contrast, the knife of President Trump would not hold the handle which is why he has held the knife tongue to let his opposition overturn. So, his hand was bleeding. Finally, he would like to evaluate the life of former President Trump has backed the biggest experience of his politics in history.

In fact, I wish to build my small business and I wish to build a foundry in bronze casting- and then, I will be bronze casting for a few of figures famous politics of the whole world and I will sell them when my small business is an honest and morality without having corruption or robbery other properties. That is why you have not forgiven me when I am a witness to your human war. In contrast, you want to murder me to the root of my life, which is why you were discriminated against me by your amoral war and destroyed my honest dream of a Vietnamese American artist.
