This Song is selected, by the permission of Lord Byron, from the Poems subjoined to his Lordship's "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" page 212. It is there stated to be a translation of a Romaic Song, which "is a great favorite with the young girls of Athens, of all classes. The Air is plaintive & pretty." With great condescension his Lordship presented me the original melody which he brought with him from Albania & though I have taken the liberty of making a few variations, I venture to hope that the character of the original air is sufficiently preserved to entitle it to that commendation which his Lordship has above assigned to it.
I. Nathan.
