Edna Bold in Manchester - between the 1900's and the 1910's

from The Long and short of it: being the recollections and reminiscences of Edna Bold, pages 42-43:

At home we made our own music. Everyone sang, parents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins. Our aunt Harriet accompanied. If she were not available. I accompanied, and if I were not available my cousin Dorothy accompanied. We ‘burbled’ through a repertoire of English Welsh, Scottish and Irish folk tunes, and the popular ballads of the day. We never seemed to tire of The Gentle Maiden, Linden Lea, Believe me if all those Endearing Young Charms, O Hush thee my Baby, Passing By, Have you not heard my Lady [Silent Worship], Sweet and Low, etc., etc.
