Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The arrangement of this collection is alphabetical according to title of musical score. The chronology is thought to be from approximately 1884 to 1915 for the music scores and 1956 for a program of a concert in Central Moravian Church’s Sesquicentennial Service May 20, 1956. Included in this service was J. Fred. Wolle’s hymn “He leads us on” which was composed in August of 1888 while Wolle was organist and choirmaster of the church. This hymn became his best known anthem and is included in this collection. The box contains fifteen folders.
