During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Armilojn nun forlasu

Author: Ann E. Beatty
Published in 1 hymnal

Author: Ann E. Beatty

Ann E. Beatty (July 15, 1857 - November 19, 1956) was an Esperantist from Cardington, Ohio, who, in the early 1920s compiled and published, probably in 1924, the first and to date the largest Esperanto-language hymnal published in North America, Espero Internacia. It was "translated for Christian Home Orphanage, Council Bluffs, Iowa" though it is unclear whether the Orphanage, which is still in existence as Children's Square, solicited or even knew in advance of the project, just as it is unclear whether the texts in Espero Internacia are wholly the product of Miss Beatty's work in translating. Some of the contents (texts and/or tunes) are explicitly credited to her, but most are uncredited. Go to person page >
