The Lost Chord
by Arthur Sullivan,
reprint of 1898 J Fischer edition
This is a new printing of the original edition on sturdy 80 pound acid-free
paper. 12 pages. All markings are original. Sullivan is known
primarily as the composer for the many Gilbert & Sullivan operettas,
he was also an organist!
I believe The
to be his most famous song, certainly the best known outside
of the operettas. Highest quality guaranteed. Size of music is 12.5" x 9.5"
This Is Newly Printed Music
Sir Arthur Sullivan (1842-1900), is also known for his characteristic
hymn tunes, many still in use, and sentimental songs. He was quite comfortable
playing the organ, and for two years held two concurrent positions as organist/choirmaster! The
Lost Chord is often
played on the organ because the original, for voice and piano, clearly has
the piano imitating the sounds of the organ. Although there have been many
arrangements for organ through the years, this one was made
during Sullivan’s lifetime by Reginald Barrett, an Englishman who
lived in America. I include brief comments, the cover of the original sheet
music, and some evocative postcards just for fun. This piece was high on
the request list and is one of my personal favorites. Easy.
