Recorded On June 11, 1912
Lucy Isabelle Marsh sang in church choirs, and became lead soprano in important churches in New York City. She performed with the Metropolitan Opera between November 1904 and March 1905. In 1909 Marsh was engaged by The Victor Talking Machine Company. The Victor Talking Machine Company employed several fine singers as recording artists. Singers were required whose sound quality registered well through a mechanical diaphragm, who were reliable workers, and who were quick studies at learning the latest song or an arrangement prepared for a recording. A popular specialty of the Victor company was the production of “Gems” from operas, operettas and shows.
On June 11, 1912 Marsh was at the Victor Recording Studio in Camden, New Jersey where she recorded “The Sunshine Song” form Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt.
