Privately bound collection of scores chiefly for voice and piano.
Emily Frances Horne (1844-1921) was born in Singleton, NSW. She was the daughter of convict-turned constable Samuel Henry Horne, after whom the Sydney suburb 'Hornsby' was named. Some of the sheet music in Emily's collection is inscribed 'Sydney 1860' and may have been acquired on a visit to town or associated with her schooling. In 1870, she married a German-born grocer Henry Ohmsen (1844-1878) who it was reported in her obituary had been a 'fine tenor singer and a well-known figure in local musical circles'.
Emily F. Horne has written her initials and her name on the majority of scores in this volume. Some of them are dated 1860 and have 'Sydney' written under her signature. The score titled 'The army and navy duet' has Emily F. Horne, an illegible place name and 1865 written on the title page.
There are a few scores with the name 'Digby Mackworth' on them.
Provenance: Stewart Symonds sheet music collection.
