Jenny Lind singing at Castle Garden in 1851
All that remains of Jenny Lind is her picture, her autograph, and memories dear to all who ever heard her sing.
Her greatest charm—her wondrously sweet and melodious voice—is gone forever.
How different had she lived in the present day!
The Victrola would have preserved her beautiful voice to posterity, just as it has Tamagno’s, Plancon’s, Gerville-Reache’s, Gilibert’s; just as it dos the other great singers of the world.
You can hear them today on the Victrola whenever you wish; and generation after generation will keep on hearing them though the artists themselves will be forever silent.
Any Victor deal in any city in the world will gladly play any music you wish to hear and demonstrate the various styles of the Victor and Victrola—$10 to $400.
