Will You Remember
( 1917)

Music: Sigmund Romberg
Lyrics: Rida M. Johnson
Arr: Ruth Randle & Merv Rowley, 2012

As the 20th Century began in America, the demand for parlor music and piano rolls began to signal the decline  of Tin Pan Alley. Our nation began to see a shift in tastes for entertainment to live Vaudeville performances, theaters, opera houses and concert halls. The latter included less sophisticated programs  than opera, and a new venue of music known as "operettas" was born....plays set to music.

Several new composers such as Sigmund Romberg began to present such "light operas" as the one from which this music appeared, Maytime. This operetta was a love story told both with talking and singing by cast members. This operetta was eventually produced as a movie starring Jeanette MacDonald, Nelson Eddy, and John Barrymore.

Will You Remember, often referred to as the "Sweetheart" song, is sung as closing music, as the hero (Eddy) lies dying in the arms of the heroine (MacDonald), having been shot with a pistol by a jealous suitor (Barrymore)... a real tear-jerker.

This music provided a real challenge in its arrangement for the dulcimer. We are proud of our effort and are sure you will enjoy playing and hearing  it.
