Processing Information

This material was transferred to the Special Collections Department of the Library, by Ms. Jane Penner of the Music Library, Old Cabell Hall, on October 20, 1993.

Scope and Content Information

There are twelve items, 1933-1937, including correspondence and miscellaneous musical scores of probable traditional Chinese music, perhaps the result of a collaboration between Alice Darrow Rounds (Mrs. George Hayden) and Chinese musicologist Chao-Mei-Pa (1907- ) and poet Chung-yu Sen. Letters to Mrs. Rounds include one from Chung-yu Sen (February 15, 1933) inquiring about her translation of the two famous Chinese poems; one from Chao-Mei-Pa (December 31, 1934) sending copies of his songs that she had requested and mentioning his concert work; and a postcard concerning the "Old Gilman house." There is also a music- writing book of Mrs. Rounds, with loose notes concerning the songs, which include "Song of the Widow Fang Folksong," "Song of Shepherd/Song of Su Wu," "Reflection in Autumn," and "Fisherman." Oversize material includes musical scores for eight Chinese songs: "Buddhist Chant," "Chinese Song," "Drinking Song," "Fisherman," "Le Vieux Pecheur," "A Love Complaint," "Night Watches," and "The Tambourine," chiefly arranged and copied by Chao-Mei-Pa.
