Leroy Anderson is best known as a composer of miniatures, most of which were written for the Boston Pops. His tunes are well known throughout the world, but people often aren’t sure who wrote them.

Leroy was born in 1908 in Cambridge, home of Harvard, to Swedish immigrants. Music came naturally, as his father played the mandolin and his mother the organ. In 1919, at age 11, he was admitted to the New England Conservatory of Music as a piano student. At his graduation in 1925 from Cambridge High and Latin School, he composed, orchestrated and conducted the class song. Admitted to Harvard, Leroy studied music with Walter Piston and other musical luminaries, graduating in 1929.

Leroy Anderson gave a lecture at the Yale School of Music in 1973 that was one of the funniest talks I’ve ever heard. He spoke at length about his years at Harvard and how the music books of his day were all out of date. His book of counterpoint took all of its examples from the symphonies of Louis Spohr. (Who?)

But the best line came from an old book on musical history. “There are three composers in Germany today whose music will live forever: Richard Wagner, Johannes Brahms and Joachim Raff.” (Raff? Who?) Leroy only knew Raff from a violin and piano piece titled ”Cavatina”, which was considered salon or restaurant music in the late 19th Century. He did his own research and discovered that Raff had written 11 symphonies. A trip to the archives of the Boston Symphony Orchestra showed that a Raff symphony had last been programmed in 1906. “If a piece is not programmed often,” Anderson said in his lecture, “there’s usually a good reason for it.” Music critic Jim Svejde has classified Raff as one of the great composers of musical trash.

From 1929 to 1935, Leroy worked as organist and choirmaster at East Congregational Church in Milton. He stayed at Harvard, going to graduate school, and earned his Ph.D. in Germanic and Scandinavian languages. He could speak and write eight languages in addition to English. He was about to take a job as a language teacher at a prestigious prep school in Pennsylvania when he decided to try his hand at music.

During his years in graduate school, Leroy had played in a number of local dance bands and got his chance to conduct. He also took over the Harvard University Band and wrote a number of clever arrangements that brought him to the attention of George Judd, manager of the Boston Pops, and Arthur Fiedler, the director. Fiedler brought Leroy on board as an arranger and orchestrator. It was to be a long professional relationship.

The Boston Pops is what remains of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) when you subtract the first chair players. Fiedler had founded the Boston Chamber Players, a subset of the BSO, and got high marks for his work. His work at the Boston Pops was different. Fiedler was in charge of light music, show tune arrangements, and other items that brought in audiences and money by way of the Boston Pops’ long time recording contract with RCA Victor. It made Fiedler a millionaire, and it should have made him a happy man. The public image of Arthur Fiedler was a smiling, spry and slightly curmudgeonly figure who liked to chase fire engines. But over the years, Fiedler’s outlook turned sour.

The canker that gnawed at his bosom was professional jealousy. Fiedler looked at conductors like Toscanini who conducted Beethoven symphonies and operas, and he wished he could get such an assignment. But even when he conducted out of town, such as when he conducted the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1962, it was an all-Gershwin concert at the Garden State Race Track in New Jersey, not at the Academy of Music in Philly. Would it have killed Sarah Caldwell, boss at the Opera Company of Boston, to bring him in to conduct one of her cutting edge productions? He was fully capable of handling such an assignment and putting his touch on the music. But he had been typecast back in the Thirties as a pops conductor, and that haunted him to his grave in 1979 at age 85.

In 1938, at age 30, Leroy Anderson heard his first original composition, written for the Boston Pops, under the baton of Arthur Fiedler. “Pizzicato” means plucking the strings, not bowing them. It does not mean a small pizza!

Anderson: “Jazz Pizzicato”

Yes, even the Russians like Anderson!

”Jazz Legato”

These two numbers were put on shellac by RCA Victor, and they scored on the Hit Parade. Leroy was on his way.

The Gift Of Sleep

January 12, 2013

Sleep is essential for good health. Scientists don’t know exactly why we need it but they know what happens when we don’t get enough. We put ourselves at risk of premature aging, weight gain, and diseases ranging from colds and flu to cancer. What God accomplishes in our bodies while we drift off to dreamland is nothing short of miraculous. While we do nothing, God replenishes our energy, rebuilds and restores our cells, and reorganizes information in our brains.

The reasons for not getting enough sleep are many, and some we can’t solve, but the Bible indicates that overwork should not be one of them (Ps. 127:2). Sleep is a gift from God that we should receive with gratitude. If we’re not getting enough, we need to find out why. Are we rising early and staying up late to earn money to acquire things we don’t need? Are we involved in ministry efforts that we think no one else is capable of doing?

I’m sometimes tempted to believe that the work I do when I’m awake is more important than the work God does while I sleep. But refusing God’s gift of sleep is like telling Him that my work is more important than His.

God does not want anyone to be a slave to work. He wants us to enjoy His gift of sleep.

The love of God is my pillow,
Soft and healing and wide,
I rest my soul in its comfort,
And in its calm I abide. —Long
If we do not come apart and rest awhile, we may just plain come apart. —Havner

Read: Psalm 121

It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late  . . . ; for so He gives His beloved sleep. —Psalm 127:2
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 29-30; Matthew 9:1-17

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

“The Empty Chair”

By Captain Carroll “Lex” Lefon, USN (ret), on December 21st, 2004

“In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture.The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER.”

Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding The Narrative Of “The Empty Chair.”

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Leroy Anderson and his brother Russell worked in a number of dance bands in the Boston area, and then their band worked the ocean liners running between the US and Scandinavian countries. It was a good way to meet women, and Leroy married one of them just before the war.

With Pearl Harbor, Leroy was drafted into the Army where his facility with languages earned him a spot in Iceland intercepting and translating German military and diplomatic communications. After a stint at OCS, Captain Anderson went to the Pentagon to head the Scandinavian desk at Military Intelligence. While he and Eleanor were living in Arlington, he wrote two pieces for the Boston Pops, and Fiedler handed him the baton for the premiere. The first piece was to score #12 on the Hit Parade and make Leroy a fortune when CBS television decided to use it as the theme for its afternoon and late night movies. That high oboe line is inspired.

Anderson: “The Syncopated Clock”

The companion piece filled out the disk, and it contains hints of a few Scandinavian composers.

”Promenade”

Thanks for the memories of Boston, Publius.

These are also memories of my beloved Dad, who introduced me to Classical music!

Leroy Anderson and his wife and two children moved to New York, the center of the American music scene. In the summer of 1946 at Woodbury (CT), in the middle of a heat wave, Leroy composed one of his immortal pieces.

Anderson: “Sleigh Ride”

The Andersons and their now four children moved to Woodbury, but there was an interruption due to Korea. Leroy spent two more years in the Army and was handed assignments that had nothing to do with his skills. Home again, Leroy sat down and wrote masterpieces. This one requires serious skill from everyone.

”Fiddle Faddle”

This piece is haunting.

”Serenata”

A look backwards to Haydn.

”Sarabande”

Classy!

”A Trumpeter’s Lullaby”
