Subject: RE: Common poems set to music
Take a look at the Lester S. Levy Collection of Sheet Music up at Johns Hopkins. Typing "Kipling" into the search box got me 22 hits with viewable sheet music from the late 1890's through the 1920's. Included are things like "Fuzzy-Wuzzy" with music by Gerald F. Cobb, "Mother O' Mine" with music by Frank E. Tours, and "Boots" with music by John Phillips Sousa.
