Product Description

In 1873, Rufus Grider published his Historical Notes to capture the musical life of Bethlehem, from the beginning to the 1870’s. Reprinted in 2016 by the Moravian Music Foundation and the Moravian Historical Society (Nazareth, PA) in honor of the 275th Anniversary of Bethlehem, the 1873 edition was originally republished by MMF in 1957. The booklet is soft-cover, 78 pages, in 8.5″ x 11″ format. The booklet contains many of Grider’s own sketches and all the images that were in the original edition.

Grider was a member of the Central Choir for over 25 years. He was a flutist, librarian of the Philharmonic Society, and proprietor of the hotel, who mysteriously “wandered away from Bethlehem and never returned.”
