Abstract:

This collection consists of a microfilm copy of a manuscript not owneed by the Society and photographs of selected pages of that manuscript. The microfilm contains a 62-page music and poetry book kept by Susanna Heath, 1782-1783, and bound in wallpaper. The music is especially interesting because each piece is dated (composed from 1780 to 1783), and eleven of the twenty-eight pieces were written by William Billings (1746-1800) of Boston, Mass., yet only three of the twenty-four sacred pieces had appeared in print before this book was written. Fourteen of the twenty-four sacred pieces were never published. Apparently, "Sukey" Heath secured manuscript copies, possibly from Billings himself (she may have been a singing student of Billings). Heath actually composed one tune, titled "Moriston."

The sacred music includes "Albany C.M.," "Europe," and "Solitude." Among the secular tunes are "General Wolfe," and "British Muse."

The poetry (35 p.) was apparently copied from various sources and includes "The Triumph of Indifference," and "A Song In the way to keep him."

The folder contains photographs of selected pages of the music and poetry book (those pages used as illustrations in the Crawford/McKay article).
