English Singer and Composer VIRGINIA GABRIEL 19thC AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED
English singer and composer who is also known as Mrs. AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED by the English Singer and Composer VIRGINIA GABRIEL. Over 15 words penned on 5-1/8 inch high by 4-3/8 inch wide 5. Replying to a request for an autograph, the singer writes that "In compliance with your wishes I have the honour to sign myself, yrs truly Virginia Gabriel".

Once folded, the note is mounted with glue from the verso onto slightly larger heavier stock clipped from an album. An unidentified autograph note is mounted on the verso of the mount. She also studied composition with the opera composer Saverio Mercadante.

Gabriel composed popular ballads which were highly regarded but, given the times, she struggled to gain recognition for her more serious compositions and she had to personally publish her cantata "Dreamland". Gabriel died from injuries sustained from a fall from a carriage just a few short years after marrying the librettist George March. In addition to "Dreamland", Gabriel wrote several cantatas including "Evangeline" and "Graziella".

She also wrote several operas, including "Widows Bewitched", "A Quiet Chateau", "Lost and Found", "Grass Widows", "The Shepherd of Cournouailles", among others.
