This Is Newly Printed Music
(1809–1847) was a child
prodigy whose short life produced some of the greatest early Romantic music. The poet of the song, the famous 13th century Minnesänger
Heinrich der Tugendhafte Schreiber, compares the expression of his sorrows to his non-listening love as fleeing deer that do not hear the
birdsongs of the forest.
Samuel P Warren
(1841–1915), though born in Montreal, made his mark on the organ world
in New York City. He was a founder of the American Guild of Organists
, a respected performer and teacher, and extraordinary transcriptionist.
