Home on the Range.
"Home on the Range" is the state song of Kansas. Dr. Brewster M. Higley originally wrote the words in a poem called "My Western Home." He wrote it in the early 1870s in Smith County, Kansas. The poem was first published in a December 1873 issue of the Smith County Pioneer under the title "Oh, Give Me a Home Where the Buffalo Roam." The music was written by a friend of Higley's named Daniel E. Kelley. Higley's original words are similar to those of the song today but not identical. The song was picked up by settlers, cowboys, and others and spread across the nation in various forms. In the early 20th century, it was arranged by Texas composer David Guion (1892-1981) who is often credited as the composer. It was officially adopted as the state song of Kansas on June 30, 1947, and is commonly regarded as the unofficial anthem of the American West.
Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day 
Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day 

How often at night where the heavens are bright
With the light of the glittering stars
Have I stood there amazed and asked as I gazed
If their glory exceeds that of ours 

Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day 

Then give me a land where the bright diamond sand
Flows leisurely down to the stream
Where the graceful white swan goes gliding along
Like a maid in a heavenly dream 

Oh I would not exchange my old home on the range
Where the deer and the antelop play
Where the seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Lascia Chio Pianga
Leave the thorn and pluck the rose,
you go in search of grief.
Old age will creep up on you
when your heart does not expect it.
-- Bernadetto Pamphill
George Frideric Handel

Mendelssohn Sonata for Piano and Cello
No.2 in D major - III

Felix Mendelssohn's Cello Sonata No. 2 in D major, Op. 58 was composed in June 1843. The work, which was dedicated to the Russian/Polish cellist Count Mateusz Wielhorski, has four movements:

  1. Allegro assai vivace
  2. Allegretto scherzando
  3. Adagio
  4. Molto allegro e vivace

Of particular interest is the Adagio, because it mirrors Mendelssohn fascination with the music of J. S. Bach at the time. (He was then musical director of the Gewandhaus concerts at Leipzig and, as such, Bach's distant successor.) The movement consists of a chorale in Bach's typical style (is it perhaps a direct quote of a specific chorale?, played by the piano in rich arpeggios. In between the phrases of the chorale, the cello plays recitatrivo-like passages.
