Ave Maria (Gounod-Bach) (Sympathy)

Melody (1853) by French operatic ("Faust") composer Charles Gounod(1818-1893)superimposed upon the Prelude #1 in C Major (1722) from the "Well Tempered Clavier" BWV 846 of J.S. Bach(1685-1750). The Latin text "Ave Maria" (Hail Mary) is the traditional Catholic prayer invoking the intercession of the Holy Mother.

Deep River (Sympathy)

American Negro spiritual, author unknown, expressing the universal longing for freedom and salvation.

Goin' Home (Sympathy)

The Largo movement of the New World Symphony (#9 in E minor, 1893), composed by Czech composer Antonin Dvorak(1841-1904) while visiting/teaching in America. The simple, moving words suggest this is a traditional Negro spiritual, but they were added in 1922 by William Arms Fisher(1861-1948), an American pupil of Dvorak.

Look For The Silver Lining (Sympathy)

Music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by B.G. "Buddy" De Sylva, from the Broadway musical "Sally," 1920. Sung in the musical originally by Jazz Age superstar Marilyn Miller, touchingly reprised by Judy Garland(playing Marilyn Miller) in the Hollywood Kern biopic, "Till The Clouds Roll By"(1946) and the title song for the 1949 Marilyn Miller biopic of the same name.

Lord's Prayer, The (Sympathy)

Music by 20th century American composer Albert Hay Malotte, The classic text is the current Catholic version and that found in the 1928 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. The original source is the 1662 English translation drawn from Greek & Latin versions of Matthew 6:9-13.

My Buddy (Sympathy)

Music by Walter Donaldson(1893-1947), lyrics by Gus Kahn(1886-1941), 1922. Between Donaldson & Kahn, separately and in collaboration, too many evergreens to list. "My Buddy" was routinely played in silent movie houses as the piano accompaniment for the film classic "Wings" (1927) set in WWI; and though written after the end of the conflict, its plaintive strains have always been associated with the Great War(1914-1918).
