COATES (Eric, 1886-1957, Composer)

Fine autograph musical quotation signed and dated, titled “A Dinder Courtship”, with 3 bars of music with the instruction “Allegretto” at the beginning and “Marcato” at the end, and “Sincerely yours” with his signature, 1 side album leaf, 6” x 5”, 5yh September

In his early career Coates wrote many songs. Most have long been forgotten, but the best of them, written before his success as an orchestral composer, linger in the repertoire of some singers: ‘I Pitch My Lonely Caravan’ (1921), ‘Birdsongs at Eventide’ (1926), ‘Stonecracker John’ (1909), ‘A Dinder Courtship’ (1912) and ‘The Green Hills o’ Somerset’ (1916), the last three just some of the 32 he composed with lyrics by the prolific lawyer-poet Fred E Weatherly.
