NOTE: The repetition of numbers in this cue sheet is simplified by the use of the “LUZ” SYMPHONIC COLOR GUIDE, sold by Music Buyers Corporation, 1520 Broadway, New York City. The color suggested for repetitions of numbers designates the Mood or Emotion, and is used as a code for such repetition.

The Music Buyers Corporation of 1520 Broadway, New York City, has printed an addition to the song “ANNIE LAURIE” in three distinct arrangements on one sheet.

No. 1—A light Polka arrangement

No. 2—A melodious arrangement for Love Theme

No. 3—A Dramatic Appassionata arrangement based on the melody “ANNIE LAURIE”

These interpretations of the well known ballad ‘ANNIE LAURIE” are very essential.
