Different WorldCat entries disagree as to whether it is John Thomas or John Rogers Thomas. John Thomas was a Welsh harpist who apparently wrote Four Romances for the harp (WorldCat entry), one of which was "The Tear", and John Rogers Thomas was an American composer, singer, and pianist of Welsh descent, who apparently wrote Welsh Melody The Tear (WorldCat entry) for piano. On the other hand, one or the other of those entries could be incorrect. IMSLP has neither of those works on either composer's page.
