Charles Dibdin; George Hogarth
|Notes:||For voice and piano; [vol. 1] contains texts; [vol. 2] contains music.
Title from [vol. 1]. Title to [vol. 2]: "The music of the best and most esteemed of the songs of Charles Dibdin, with new piano-forte accompaniments, by various composers."
"Dibdin's musical learning was far inferior to his excellence as a melodist; and he has therefore left us no accompaniments to his songs at all commensurate with their merit ... In attempting to remedy this defect, the music of the best and most popular of his songs has been carefully re-edited for this work, and is now presented with new pianoforte accompaniments, from the pens of Messrs. Lancelot, C. Purday, Westrop, and Hogarth.": pref. [v. 1].
"Memoir of Charles Dibdin": p. [xi]-xxvi [v. 1].
