William Shakespeare

Born April 23, 1564
Died April 23, 1616

1916

Shakespeare died three hundred years ago, but today the VICTOR brings back the long forgotten music of Shakespeare and his time to the world.

The ballads, “Airs'' and dances of the days of good Queen Bess live again for us through Victor Records, which have been

made in anticipation of the Nation-wide observance of the tercentenary of the “Bard of Avon.'

Nowhere else can you obtain the real old English country dances, gathered by Mr. Cecil Sharp, nor the songs from all the plays, carefully reproduced from the oldest authentic versions, with suitable instrumentation and the proper voice for the part in the play.

For Pageants, Festivals, Masques, any Play of Shakespeare, or A Shakespeare Day, you will find here abundant material for your needs. AS YOU LIKE IT
