Haydn's Hymn to the Emperor
ID JSS0254
Title Haydn's Hymn to the Emperor
Document Reference x/257/2f
Format 231 x 310 mm
Medium Handwritten music on lined sheet
Item Type Manuscript
Subject Scottish Music, Variation
Item Description Skinner has added his own variations to the well known melody from Haydn's 'Emperor' Quartet,(the German National Anthem). It is confusing to read at first - each line must be read as a single line of music. The lines on the left hand side of the page joining three staves at a time, should be ignored. He writes to his pupil James McPherson: Care. Only M.S. no draft kept'.
