[The Jewish national anthem 'Hatikvah', sung in London at Gardiner's Corner ('the gateway to the East End').]
Six items, in good condition, on lightly-aged paper. In addition to manuscript scores by Sussman of five parts (soprano, tenor, bass, alto and conductor) of 'Hatikvah' (the five parts totalling 6pp., 4to, with staves also drawn out in manuscript), there is a duplicated typescript of an English translation of 'Hatikvah', titled 'Men Awake!' ('Workers all! | Hear the call!'), on one side of a 4to leaf, with the Hebrew lyrics in Sussman's duplicated autograph on the reverse, with directions to Gardiner's Corner, Aldgate East, London, where the song was presumably sung in support of the Jewish settlement of Palestine/Israel. From the papers of Joseph Sussman of 62 St Quintin Avenue, London, W10, who in a 1949 issue of 'The Gramophone' advertised 'thorough tuition in Pianoforte playing and theoretical musical subjects'.
