Catch the Cincinnati Pops Holiday program on PBS when it repeats in your area -- it's wonderful! :)

It is the same Jesse Crawford, although if your copy was released in 1976, it is somewhat of a miracle, as Mr. Crawford died in December, 1962. Toward the end of his life, he was induced to make some recordings of which he certainly would not have been proud. It was a shame to hear a great artist singing his 'swan song'...   I cannot comment on the record's value, but I suspect it will have little monetary worth. I would keep it, as it does display some of his former inventive technique and ability.   Just my opinion.... Wishing you the best in the New Year.     _________________________________ Regards, | | | U U U U U | Bob | U UUUUU U | | U _______________ U | | U _______________ U | | U _______________ U |

Sitting up here on Long Island, NY, looking out at 50 degree drizzle.   Do you have any info on John Seely, the composer? I knew a man by that name quite well. He was a piano tech in the Westhampton area of Long Island. I was wondering if it could possibly be the same person - the man I knew was born c. 1910.   Thanks, Vicki Ceruti Myosotis51@aol.com

After so many days recently of 30 or near 30 degree heat snow would make a welcome change.   Duncan Charig   Subject: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow From: "Judy A. Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Tue, 23 Dec 1997 16:49:53 -0500   Worcester MA -- Well, it's Tuesday afternoon at 4:30pm and we are housebound with 18 inches and a little still coming down (initial prediction was four inches and turn to rain)! A cancelled concert for tonight, and then two services Christmas Eve. and one 9am Christmas Day before I head for New Hampshire for a family gathering. And more predicted for Christmas Eve! Merry Christmas!!!! Judy Ollikkala

The man was born in 1921, so if the gentleman you know was born around 1910, it might work. Perhaps some kind folks on the list will have pity upon us and provide some history. Thanks for your note. I guess I should note here for the list that the Reger piece wasnot "in dulci jubilo" but rather "How lovely shines the morning star." Sleep is starting to o're-take me.
