MARILYN HELD: LYRICIST AND SONGWRITER

....It all began with a rusty rain barrel filled with yellowed, tattered pieces of sheet music, given to me by an elderly neighbor lady. I was eight years old, a shy farm girl from Madison County, a small community in upstate New York.  That old sheet music marked the beginning of a life enhanced by the tender and beautiful melodies written between 1900 and 1922 (all melodies now in the public domain).  It wasn't long before my deepening love of this music from a bygone era far surpassed any desire to practice my regularly assigned piano lesson.  But practice I did, as mother saw to that!

Although I received a B.S. In Music Education from the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY, with an applied major in piano, soon the music of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms was packed away -- once again overshadowed by the melodies of Victor Herbert, Irving Berlin, Carrie Jacobs-Bond, and  others. Life was ever changing -- but the old music, always my focus.

It wasn't until 1998, when a friend suggested I consider voice lessons, that I developed the confidence to share my then 50+ year vocal talent in my church. Wanting to share something other than traditional hymns, or modern choruses of the day, I immediately returned to the beloved melodies of my roots. Thus, MEMORABLE MELODIES FOR THE MASTER was born. This collection of over 70 songs is the creative result of a previously unrecognized lyric writing ability -- an ability for which I continue to take no credit, realizing it is only the result of a higher power working through me to spread messages of hope, love, mercy, forgiveness and peace.

Throughout this project, care was taken to maintain the integrity of all the original melodies, harmonies, rhythms and accompaniments. There has been only an occasional rhythm change to fit the new lyrics, or an occasional accompaniment altered to lessen its difficulty. The original song title, original lyricist, and original copyright date are listed at the end of each song.
