In effect a song for violin and piano, not unlike some of Prince Albert's lieder for voice and piano, this little piece of salon music has a distinctive charm and simplicity. Probably written in the 1840s, it has a straightforward AABBA structure. I have taken the liberty of writing out the repeats in full with the kind of ornamentation common at the time. Players who prefer the original can easily repeat the relevant unornamented 8-bar phrases. Copy-text: The Collected Compositions of HRH The Prince Consort, ed. W.G.Cusins (London, n.d. [1882?]), pp. 220-21. Queen Victoria authorised this edition from her Master of the Queen's Musick, so we can trust its fidelity to the Prince's intentions. Dynamics etc as in the original; I have added the metronome mark.
