  • WorldCat shows several unedited publications of this in the 19th century, but they all have bracketed publication dates, e.g. "[between 1877 and 1879?]". Therefore, it is difficult to find the "original". However, the earliest publications only have two instrumentation options -- voice, chorus, piano -- or voice, piano. Tagged for those two, but anything else is likely to be a later arrangement by someone other than Henry Clay Work.
