Prelude (C.H. Abrahall)

£7.99

Product description

Prelude written by C.H. Abrahall (illustrated throughout by Anna Zinkeisen)
Printed in 1947

'Foreword'

Often i have wondered what a child must feel like who is born with some great gift and the spark which urges expression.

Thanks to Eileen Joyce, I have had the privilege of probing back into her childhood days, and all the reactions which went with them. At times it has been a little difficult for her to remember or re-capture the past. On these occasions I have used an author's licence and drawn upon my own imagination, even to conjuring up a few fictitious characters with which to surround her. It is only when we are growing old that our childhood returns crystal clear, and my heroine is still young and at the height of her career.

It is my hope that this story which Miss Joyce has generously let me use, will prove an inspiration to many youthful musicians and young people interested in the arts.

*contains 'Happy Birthday' message from 6th may 1948
