04/23/14 - NNHS Newsletter - The Sweetest Sounds

“Sweet is every sound,
Sweeter thy voice, but every sound is sweet;
Myriads of rivulets hurrying through the lawn,
The moan of doves in immemorial elms,
And murmuring of innumerable bees.”

 - Alfred, Lord Tennyson
(06 Aug 1809 - 06 Oct 1892)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   This 1962 song is one of my favorites!

BONUS #1 - The Sweetest Sounds - Andy Williams

BONUS #2 - The Sweetest Sounds - Eydie Gorme

BONUS #3 - The Sweetest Sounds - Barbra Streisand


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sweetest_Sounds_%28song%29:

"The Sweetest Sounds" is a popular song, written by Richard Rodgers (unlike most of his compositions, writing both music and lyrics) for the musical No Strings, in 1962. It is also used in the film adaption Cinderella starring Brandy, Whitney Houston and Whoopi Goldberg in 1997. Barbra Streisand recorded the song for "Barbra Streisand...And Other Musical Instruments". Sergio Franchi recorded the song in 1963 on his RCA Victor Red Seal album Broadway, I Love You.[1] Ella Fitzgerald's swinging version can be heard on her Verve Records release "Hello, Dolly!". The melodic theme appears to have been inspired by an orchestral figure in the final movement of Johannes Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 2 (Brahms) (measures 64-80).

Andy Williams released a version of the song on his 1964 album, The Great Songs from "My Fair Lady" and Other Broadway Hits.

      From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL - 04/22/14 - "Video":

Check out this video.  This is why we go to Haiti.
 
 
This is a video of a trip three college friends from Alabama made to Haiti over their spring break this March.  Lydia, the tallest, was in Haiti when we were there in January.  She is truly a delight!  She had been there a week, fallen in love with the children, sponsored one student, coaxed a friend back home to sponsor another, worked with us to enter and process 500 new books to begin a small library at Repatriote and she gave our visit such an uplift!  Her birthday gift was another flight to Haiti for spring break.  The project was one the three girls initiated and funded.  Thankfully, Lydia's grandmother shared this video with us.

The Sweetest Sounds

Written by Richard Rodgers (unlike most of his compositions, writing both music and lyrics) for the musical No Strings, 1962
(28 June 1902 – 30 Dec 1979)



The sweetest sounds I'll ever hear
Are still inside my head
The kindest words I'll ever know, are waiting to be said
The most entrancing sight of all, is yet for me to see
And the dearest love in all the world
Is waiting somewhere for me
Is waiting somewhere, somewhere for me

The sweetest sounds I'll ever hear
Are still inside my head
The kindest words I'll ever know, are waiting to be said
The most entrancing sight of all, is yet for me to see
And the dearest love in all the world
Is waiting somewhere for me (waiting somewhere)
Is waiting somewhere, somewhere for me

The most entrancing sight of all, is yet for me to see
And the dearest love in all the world
Is waiting somewhere for me
Is waiting somewhere, somewhere for me
