Throwback Thursday: Love Songs

Valentine’s Day is coming up and if you’re looking for a unique way to express your love to your special someone, this week’s #ThrowbackThursday can help!

We’re featuring a couple of Nebraska love songs that are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Our first piece of music is titled “Love’s Faith”. It was written in 1923 by Edith Louise Neumann and Carleton Everett Knox of Wymore, Nebraska.

Our second piece of music featured this week is titled “If I Were a Rose”. It was written in 1899 by Edouard and Lena Hesselberg.

Both of these pieces of sheet music are owned and published by Polley Music Library. Over 250 pieces of Nebraska sheet music are available through the Nebraska Memories database, as well as concert programs, manuscripts, theatre programs, photographs, and other memorabilia. You can also listen to a dozen performances of selections from this collection performed by local musicians.
