Tune of the Day: Home! Sweet Home!
This famous song was written by English composer Sir Henry Bishop, who adapted it from American dramatist John Howard Payne's 1823 opera Clari, Maid of Milan. “Home! Sweet Home!“ was very popular with troops on both sides of the American Civil War, but was reputedly banned from being played in Union Army camps for being too redolent of hearth and home and so likely to incite desertion.
Thanks to Jackie for suggesting this tune!
