New York: Edward Schuberth & Co., 1879, 1877.
1877 copyright to Schuberth on cover, 1879 to composer inside for file 1 ; files 2 to 8 belong to an 1877 edition of all 13 songs. (If 1879 is a revised edition, no.1 is taken from the revised edition, nos. 2-5, 11-13 from 1877, but if so will post all of both or as much of 1879 as is available.)
|Work Title||Golden Childhood|
|Alternative Title||A collection of juvenile (childrens') songs with accompaniment of the pianoforte|
|Composer||Dulcken, Ferdinand Quentin|
|First Publication||1877 – New York: Edward Schuberth & Co.
|Dedication||To Mrs. Charles F. Tretbar|
|Instrumentation||Voice, Chorus (in at least one song), and Piano|
No.13 creates a 4-staff piano sound with much use of pedals (and quasi arpa and quasi organo sound) but despite surface appearances the accompaniment (though difficult?) is for one player at one piano, accompanying unison chorus ad libitum (sacred chorus).
Possibly revised in 1879 (LoC has a 1877 edition with all 13 songs, and separate issues copyright 1879 individually of most of the first 12 - haven't compared the musical content yet to see if there are any differences in the individual songs between 1877 and 1879. If so, will upload both as possible.)
