It might even be months but clements record of the bear sues from Jocelyn then Elman's record of the Schubert's Ave Maria or any one of a thousand we might mention while smooth the wrinkles from your brow the triple furrows from your mind ten years from today as surely as they will now when the music of all the world is at your disposal it is almost impossible to refrain from bathing heart and soul and body and but remember that to become saturated with anything is to lose the fine edge of enjoyment with too frequent sequent hues the most valuable remedy may lose its healing virtues definite measurable physical effects could be produced by music and the gist of the matter is that one should become familiar enough with music to understand and enjoy it it but never familiar enough to induce the loss of it's a fact here it when you need to hear it and it will will continue to be a thing of joy not for days or weeks off through the years personal taste varies more or perhaps in music than in any other art but in a general way it follows much the same broad channels and in in any case the victor record catalogue since it actually does contain almost all the music of the world by the world's greatest experience of musical art is a treasure house of untold satisfaction and keeps the whitest possible scope for personnel selection. The Victoria is not one instrument but all of them it is a voice choice a violin a trombone or a symphony orchestra according to your will and in making a selection off-record full advantage should be taken of this most extraordinary privilege making up a troll program. I'm for the entertainment of friends calls for just the same variety and emotional balance as the professional musician strives to introduce into his own programs but in this you as your own concert manager enjoy a degree of latitude holy holy beyond the reach of any single artist and any manager for Africa branch of Music every type of music music and every medium of musical expression may be brought into play by the simple expedient of having a sufficiently the barge and sufficiently varied collection of records in giving operatic programs or in playing operatic records occurred for your own satisfaction the Victoria Book of the opera we'll be an added source of pleasure and satisfaction Ford affords.
