Catalogue Note

UNPUBLISHED.  Not in Threlfall; the Delius scholar mentions this song only in passing in his 1977 catalogue. This "mysterious" song still remained "unidentified and unlocated" in his Frederick Delius: A Supplementary Catalogue (1986). Delius had composed another Geibel setting in 1888, "O schneller mein Ross" (Threlfall V/7).
