Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sing Us One of the Old Songs
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: In a gilded hall of music
WorldCat.org gives the following description:
[Title:] SING US ONE OF THE OLD SONGS
Words and music by W.B. Kelly and J.H. Woodhouse ; sung by Miss Millie Lindon.
Sheet music published in London by Francis, Day & Hunter, ©1900.
First line: In a gilded hall of music sat a bright expectant crowd.
First line of chorus: Sing us one of the old songs, George.
Copies are held by the University of Oxford and The British Library
By the way, Michael Kilgariff wrote a book called "Sing Us One of the Old Songs: A Guide to Popular Song 1860-1920" (Oxford University Press, 1998).
That's all I could find.
