Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Give Me The Roses While I Live
I would like to find out more about R. H. Cornelius.
Was he Welsh? Cornish? Was he a miner? I have heard
all of these...which are true? This is a beautiful
waltz. Does anyone have any information about James
Rowe? (any other songs he wrote or co-wrote?)

There was a recent thread about Welsh songs and hymns
and I was reminded that R. H. Cornelius was possibly
Welsh. (or Cornish...are Cornwall and Wales in close
proximity to each other?)
