Figure Dramatized Songs of the North American Indian Figure Figure Copyright Underwood & Underwood Thurlow Lieurance Composer-Pianist Edna Woolley Lieurance Soprano Hubert E. Small, Flutist Program 1. SCENE CHARACTERISTIC, from Winona and Shabotha. (a) Among the Pines I Love to Roam. (b) From the Old Dance Lodge (Original Ojibway Home Song). (c) Prayer for Her People. 2. SHE STANDS THERE SMILING (Secular), Roos-Lieurance. She stands there smiling, She is the spring come walking, The spring comes walking, walking in the land. In her hair are summer winds, Cheeks are bright red willow bark, In her footsteps grasses spring, Her voice is the meadow lark. Her breath is the cherry blossoms, In her eyes are the blue-deep lakes. Her lips are the wild strawberries, In her smile the land awakes. She stands there smiling, She is the spring come singing, The spring comes singing, singing in the land. 3. BY WEEPING WATERS (Indian Mourning Song). 4. GHOST PIPES, Roos-Lieurance. The night wind sighs, and trees are talking; Down grass-grown trails ghost warriors walking, Forgotten trails dim shapes are stalking. In the time of ginseng berries When the smoky moon rides high, Sleeping trails awake again To tread of warriors passing by. Phantom chiefs from long star trails Come to hold great council talks Dance and smoke the calumets And fade out when the white dawn walks. The sweet dawn wind stirs night fogs drifting; From out dawn mist far hills are lifting The spruce-crowned hills, the ghost smoke rifting. 5. FLUTE SOLOS. (a) Selected. (b) A Sioux Love Song. 6. FROM THE SOUTHWEST. (a) I Sing in My Heart at the Weaving (Characteristic). I sing in my heart at the weaving, The fleet-winged hours of weaving. Wind-swift the pony my hunter rides Home from the far away hill. A fat doe from his saddle swings, How then can my heart be still. Five colors I weave in his blanket, Some bright like the red bird's wing. But the ones that lift a song in my heart, Are the soft as the willows in spring. I sing in my heart at the weaving, The heart of me sings at the weaving. (b) The Chant of the Corn Grinders (Pueblo). (c) Autumn (Secular). A haze on the far horizon, The infinite, tender sky. The ripe rich tint of the cornfields And the wild geese sailing high. And all over upland and lowland The charm of the golden-rod. Some of us call it autumn, And others call it God. 7. ANALYSIS OF INDIAN MELODIES. 8. DEMONSTRATION OF INDIAN FLUTES. 9. WHERE DAWN AND SUNSET MEET, Roos-Lieurance. 10. INDIAN SONGS. (a) The Owl's Bleak Cry. (b) Wium, an Indian Lullaby from the Pueblos. 11. PIANO SOLO. By the Waters of Minnetonka. 12. A PRAYER AND SCENE CHARACTERISTIC FROM THE FIRE DANCE. This program is subject to change and any of the following numbers may be substituted: Where Drowsy Waters Steal, The Bird and the Babe, Where the Sad Waters Flow, The Dream Trail, Longing, In Mirrored Waters.

Roos) and the musician (Thurlow Lieurance) have blended the inspiration brought to them by the wonderful green timber country in the magic valley of the St. Croix River. Price, $1.50. Songs from the Yellowstone Unusually interesting songs. These four songs possess a delightful difference from the average conventional song. Price, $1.00. Forgotten Trails This group of four songs, like the Green Timber songs, are the work of Chas. O. Roos and Thurlow Lieurance and the heart-beat of the great outdoors is conveyed in these artistic songs. Price, $1.00. THE COMPASS of each song is indicated by large and small letters. The first printed letter indicates the lowest note of the song. If the small letter is printed first, it shows that the lowest note is below the staff; if last, that the highest note is above the staff. The capital letters are notes upon the staff. A complete list of works by Thurlow Lieurance, including Songs, Women's Choruses, Men's Choruses, Mixed Choruses and numbers for Piano, Violin, Cello, Flute and Pipe Organ, may be obtained on request to Theo, Presser Co., Publishers, 1710-1712-1714 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, Pa.
