About this Item

4 pp. Fo. Lightwood cites two versions of "The Chimes Quadrille, one by Henry Oakey, the other by Lancelott. Oakey's "Ethiopian Quadrilles" is in the Lester Levy Collection of Sheet Music at Johns Hopkins. He also composed "The Bruce Polka". F. Lancelott is also represented in the Levy Collection and was often published by the Musical Bouquet. The Musical Bouquet series began ca. 1846 and was operated by James Bingley and William Strange, often via piracy until the establishment of Stationers Hall, for copyright registration. One of their prime properties was the music of Henry Russell (1812Ð1900), the famous singer and composer who lived for a period in the United States. Musical Bouquet competed fiercely for his music and leadership of the mass music market in mid-century. Alfred Ashley (1821?Ð97, fl. 1840Ð50) was a noted English engraver of the mid-19th century and the author of "The Art of Etching on Copper" (1849). He was also noted for his musical titles.
