A collection of nearly 300 songs that were popular and widely sung during the last decades of the 19th century. Prominent political figures
and well-loved alii composers, such as Liliʻuokalani, Leleiōhoku, and Kalākaua, are nicely represented in this group, which includes love ballads, tributes, playful mele, and compositions with cultural and historical comment.
