Mendelssohn wrote the privately commissioned piece, a song titled The Heart of Man is Like a Mine, in 1842. It was never published but the original manuscript has now emerged in a private collection in the US.
today we ask you to help the The e.Lib, the host of this site. We
survive on small donations averaging about $13 and a yearly grant.
Only a tiny portion of our 30,000+ daily readers donate. If everyone
reading this right now gave $3, our fundraising would be done within
an hour. That's right, the price of a cup of coffee is all we need.
We're a very small not-for-profit company with costs of a very large
website: bandwidth, servers, and equipment. The The e.Lib is something special. It is like a public library where
we can all go to learn and grow. If the The e.Lib
is useful to you, please take one minute to keep it online and serving
Thank you, everyone!
