Henry W. Goodban [1818-??] was the son of a composer and brother to two more. That seems to be roughly the sum of all knowledge known to the web or to the literature in my collection about him!
|Gentle Annie, Fantasia for the Piano Forte||MIDI||piano salon|
Gentle Annie is a song written by Stephen Foster in 1856, and allegedly
popular in the USA. It seems to have been dedicated to a cousin, Annie Evans,
who had recently died. Few Victorian pieces end well! |
Goodban's version is marked Allegro con Spirito, and consists of Foster's theme plus a set of variations. It goes much faster than the song, and is designed to show off, with lots of arpeggios and such-like. But it lies quite easily under the hands.
Sequenced mostly in 1999 from a copy in my collection.
