Composed by "Th. Lachner"; Musicsack lists two composers by this name, Thekla Lachner (sister of the family, organist, born 1803) and Theodor Lachner. Am assuming this was by Theodor, but the possibility should be considered that it may have been by Thekla Lachner. (There is also a mazurka, in F, by "Theod. Lachner" digitized by BSB (published in 1890).)
