Description
 
In the decades immediately preceding the Civil War, Philadelphian William Henry Fry (1815-1864) was one of the main composers working in the larger musical forms. There are 3 of his operas extant -- two of them having been produced: “Leonora” in 1845 & “Notre Dame of Paris” in 1864. Fry was also fond of orchestral choral writing, in both of which forms he wrote large-scale works. Fry was interested in all phases of our intellectual life -- literary, artistic, political, as well as musical. But through it all, music was his passion, whether as composer or critic. The Library Co. of Phila. has a magnificent collection of Fry’s musical works, both published & in manuscript. Here is an annotated listing of these holdings. B&W illustrations.
