Jingle Bells.Composed in 1857 by James Lord Pierpont this Christmas Carol is one of the most popular ever. This sheet music is arranged in a traditional upbeat style.Solo Score.Pure Duo Sheet Music, Arrangement for Viola and Bb Instrument by Lars Christian Lundholm.

Here Nurkse brings alive the particular details that shape a life, in this case unique to the world of Brooklyn—a job at the Arnold Grill, “topping off drafts with a paddle” for the truckers who came in; the deaf white alley cat that mysteriously survived the winter on a stoop in Bensonhurst; the narrow bed where young love took place; the wild gardens behind the tenements. His exploration of this almost mythic city past is combined with a sense of the future speeding toward us—the ongoing riddle of time and being in a larger universe.

. . . And she who was driving said,
We know the coming disaster intimately but the present is unknowable.

Which disaster, I wondered, sexual or geological? But I was shy:
her beauty was like a language she didn’t speak and had never heard.

From “The Present”
