PRAYER AND PARAPHRASE for Virgil Thomson by NED ROREM

NED ROREM Holograph Music Manuscript. Reproduction (blue print? Circle Blue Print Co., New York City printed in bottom margin).

Piano Music. Two pages. One folded sheet 11" x 14", opens to 22" x 14".

Beneath the last measure of Prayer is the number 9-15-45, and beneath the last measure of Paraphrase is the number 10-45. They are probably the composition dates, September 25, 1945 and October 1945.

An important early composition by Ned Rorem. Only one other known copy, archived at Yale in the Virgil Thomson Papers.

GOOD CONDITION: The sheet is toned, lightly foxed, slightly fragile, the fold is tender and starting to split but holding, tiny tears and chips to edges, otherwise the piece is bright, unmarked, completely legible, and remains upright on a music stand.

Ned Rorem (born 1923) is an American composer and diarist. He won a Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1976 for his Air Music: Ten Etudes for Orchestra.

Virgil Thomson (1896 - 1989) was an American composer and critic. He was instrumental in the development of the "American Sound" in classical music. In 1949, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music for the score to the film Louisiana Story.
