Reesor choir's choral book

Description

A handmade, cloth covered choral score containing hectographs of primarily sacred pieces in German assembled between 1939 and 1942 in Reesor, Ontario for the local choir. The pieces are notated in ziffern (cypher) style. Many of the pieces are dated, presumably with the date of performance. The last piece is "Beautiful Dreamer" by Stephen Foster, in English, for a Valentine's Day party, 1942.
