Notes
-  The early form of Frank N. Scott's piece on Garfield, described both as "A Nation's Tribute of Rejoicing" and as "A Prayer for the Recovery of Their Beloved President," was deposited for copyright on September 15, 1881, four days before Garfield's death. (It may well have appeared in stores slightly earlier.) We know little about Scott besides his Garfield piece in its two versions -- there are only two other pieces by him in this online collection -- but he was clearly adaptable. The music handles its straightforward four-part texture well.
-  The performers are the "Music for the Nation" Singers, and are all Library of Congress staff members. These selections were recorded in the Library's Coolidge Auditorium on September 23, 1998. Robert Saladini, director; Phillip DeSellem, pianist; Carol Guglielm, Elizabeth Miller (sopranos); Laura Lee Fischer, Linda Gill (altos); David Arbury, Thomas A. Howe (tenors); Ralph Gingery, John Oswald Greene (basses).
