January 12, Maude Nugent (1873 or 1874 – 1958)

Since July, I have been concentrating solely on female composers.  You can read about that in my post from July 19.  If I can’t find one born on the calendar day, I may not post.  On with today’s composer.

Maude Nugent was an American singer and composer. See Wikipedia entry here.

      Hi Richard. Thank you. Very nice to hear from you. I’ve had about 6 months of change–tearing a hamstring, offered a “package” to retire, a couple of trips out West, a Qi Gong retreat at Ghost Ranch, and finally deciding to retire. Spending a lot of time swimming and learning, and one of my new years resolutions was to read Proust. Hope you are well. Take care and happy new year!

        maybe I’ve told you this before, Kurt, but it took me 33 years to read Proust, I read it out loud, in French, page by page, which worked out to about 100 pages a year, until it sounded like I was speaking it naturally, it changed my life – cheers, and all the very best – R ! chard

    Funny enough, I found a set of CDs for the first half of Du Cote de Chez Swann in French at a book sale. So, I’ll listen to a half hour a day. I like the idea of reading out loud, though. I used to do so for Baudelaire’s “Les Fleurs du Mal” in college along with a recording. Can’t find the cassette. It had a man and a woman, I think famous actors. Here’s one from youtube:
