04/23/20 - 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 My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/14/20, 12:01 AM - "Aww, a miracle, a needlepoint hack & HOPE." (#8 in a Series of 15):

 

I heard something I found heartwarming and thought I would pass on. People keep stating this is the beginning of a new way of life.

I do not know who to credit it to, but a female voice replied "No, this is just a bad period of time. God will not leave us in a diseased, poor and frightened state."  <3 That! 

I am hoping this will be it for me for a week or so. The good things we are all seeing, increased humor, kindness, and sweet and encouraging thoughts, to uplift. Let's hope these aspects won't be forgotten, amidst this horrible pandemic.  

   HAHA! Thank you, Shari!

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
