About this Item

7 pp. Fo. A poem of Longfellow, here set to music by James Ernest Perring (1822Ð89), a London born composer of art songs who sang tenor with great success in New York, London and elsewhere in mid-19th century. He ranked "with the leading tenors of the day, and sang frequently with Jennie Lind É[and others]. He achieved his greatest distinction in oratorio, and was probably unsurpassed for purity of tone and artistic conceptionÉHe was a thorough all-round musician and was a composer of some note" (New York Times, Obituary, Jan. 16, 1889). This song was one of his most noted compositions. Several versions exist of the musical setting of this poem by Longfellow; the first, under the title "I Knew a Maiden Fair", was composed by C. S. T. and published by Firth & Hall in 1842. A few spots of foxing. Else, Very Good. BAL, Vol. 5, p. 624. Disbound.Engraved decorated cover First Edition by this composer. Bookseller Inventory # 10844
