Sheet Music of the Week

"Spoontime." Albert von Tilzer. New York: York Music Co., 1905.

Our fellow bloggers at In Custodia Legis and Inside Adams: Science, Technology and Business have instituted  running features called Pic of the Week, in which they bring you, the reader, a visual slice of their worlds.  In the Muse follows suit with Sheet Music of the Week, in which we will show you some of the remarkable cover art from our vast collection of popular sheet music. This week’s feature is “Spoontime,” by the prolific songwriter Albert von Tilzer, from the Historic Sheet Music, 1800-1922 collection in the Performing Arts Encyclopedia. The PAE contains dozens of  titles composed by von Tilzer, including his most famous composition, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”  While we in the the Mid-Atlantic are in the throes of Winter and must wait months before baseball season, “Spoontime” is any time.  Stay warm, sports fans!
