The 1945 Mendelsohn edition is only two pages and in English only. While the main published versions were for piano and voice, other versions were arranged for band, orchestra or male quartette. Mechanicals for the phonograph and player piano were also released.

Et souvent j'aime à m'enivrer De leur senteur be'nie. J'en sais une au pur eclat, Sans rival ici-bas. De pleurs arrosée. Youtube. Anne Perry. Anne Perry (born 28 October 1938 as Juliet Marion Hulme) is an English author of historical detective fiction, best known for her Thomas Pitt series and William Monk series.

Anne Perry

She was convicted of participating in the murder of her friend's mother in 1954. She changed her name after serving her sentence. Early life[edit] Murder and trial[edit] On 22 June 1954, the girls and Honora Rieper went for a walk in Victoria Park in their hometown of Christchurch. Parker and Hulme stood trial in Christchurch in 1954 and were found guilty on August 29 of that year.

Parker and Hulme are not believed to have had any contact since their trial.[4] These events formed the basis for the 1994 film Heavenly Creatures, in which Melanie Lynskey portrayed a teenage Pauline Parker and Kate Winslet portrayed teenaged Juliet Hulme. Although many presumed Hulme's and Parker's relationship to be sexual, Perry stated in 2006 that, although the relationship was obsessive, the two "were never lesbians".[4]

1918: Australians in France - Nurses - "The roses of No Man's Land"

As part of the Australian Army Nursing Service, 2,139 Australian nurses served in the First World War, and 130 worked as part of the British nursing service. Female doctors were not permitted to join the medical services, because it was thought women would be too "delicate" for war medical work. Yet horror and heartbreak was what nurses faced every day in this war, and their vital work earned them a new respect within the medical profession. Sister Pearl Corkhill was one of the few Australian Nursing sisters to receive the Military Medal. She had been transferred to No. 38 Casualty Clearing Station, which twice suffered heavy German air raids during the week of 27 July.

Today word came that I had been awarded the MM. Nurses became an integrated part of split-second treatment decisions. Nurses had a unique role in the war. Rose of No Man's Land.
