From AIS Bulletin #171 October 1963. Introducing CHAMPAGNE MUSIC-Ruffled, horizontally flared white and orchid pastel. H.C.'63. $25.00. Moldovan's Gardens.
CHAMPAGNE MUSIC (Fay '64) is a must for the 1964 buyer. There is simply nothing else quite like it. Substance is superb, the color a pastel blue orchid deeper in the heart of the standards but lighter on the upper part of the flaring falls and surrounding the white beard that is tipped coral red; form is ruffled and gay like its musical namesake. We predict this will become one of the most popular of all the new pastels. [Roberts, Earl (1964). Taped Commentary on Fay Garden, American Iris Society Bulletin 174(July 1964), 48.]
