PREPAC E.

HE present volume is intended as a contribution to what may
be justly considered a not unimportant department of our
national song literature—the Nursery Rhymes namely, which seem
appointed, by tacit and universal consent, to be “said or sung,” and
to be listened to, with unwearied interest and appreciation, in those
great National Institutions, the British Nursery and Home School-
room. To all who are interested in the selection of books for children
the book is now offered by the Publishers, with the hope that it may gain
general and extended approbation. Especial pains have been taken to
secure the suffrage of that still larger public, in petticoats and batatiees
bockers, whom a genial English writer of the last century, who loved
children, and spoke and wrote of them with infinite tenderness and
affection, describes as “masters in all the learning on the other side of
eight years old.” :

If it be true—as asserted by one of the greatest of English critics
and authors—that Sir Roger de Coverley and Mr. Spectator are more
real than nine-tenths of the heroes of the last’ century, and that almost
the only autobiography to be received entirely without distrust and
disbelief is that of one ROBINSON CRUSOE, Mariner, of York — then

surely those important personages, JACK and JILL, HumMpry Dumpty,



PREFACE.

and my Laby WIND, are real and distinct entities in the mind of
every little child whose nursery education has not been entirely and
unwarrantably neglected; and therefore it has seemed good to the Pub-
lishers to present to the children of the present day the adventures
of those heroes, embellished with whatever pictorial illustration, careful
selection, musical accompaniment, and the advantages of artistic typo-
graphy and detail can contribute, to render them more acceptable to
all English children.

In the arrangement of the musical portion of the volume, especial
care has been taken by MR. ELLIOTT to keep the songs strictly within
the capacity of children’s execution, and the compass of children’s voices.
In his own family he has found a young jury ready to test the various
tunes, and has chosen only those melodies which found prompt accept- ,
ance, were easily remembered, and came trippingly off the. tongue.

The pictorial illustrations of the book have been designed. under
the superintendence of, and engraved by, the BROTHERS DALZIEL.

Among the old favourites a few new aspirants to popularity
will be found; but it is hoped that their presence will be considered
an additional attraction, and in no way lessen the pretensions of the
present volume to be considered a compendium of National Nursery

Rhymes.

NATIONAL NURSERY RHYMES.

NATIONAL

INR S Bins THY MBS

AND

WORSE Ry SO NCS:

Set to Music

BY

Jo Ea FOr

Wiri ILLUSTRATIONS, E-NGRAVED BY THE BROTHERS DALZIEL.



LONDON:
GEORGE ROUTLEDGE AND SONS

THE BROADWAY, LUDGATE.

INO Waa ILI Oy WW IBIR, ALIN ID CO...
1 BERNERS STREET, W., AND 35 POULTRY, E.C.

1872.













PREPAC E.

HE present volume is intended as a contribution to what may
be justly considered a not unimportant department of our
national song literature—the Nursery Rhymes namely, which seem
appointed, by tacit and universal consent, to be “said or sung,” and
to be listened to, with unwearied interest and appreciation, in those
great National Institutions, the British Nursery and Home School-
room. To all who are interested in the selection of books for children
the book is now offered by the Publishers, with the hope that it may gain
general and extended approbation. Especial pains have been taken to
secure the suffrage of that still larger public, in petticoats and batatiees
bockers, whom a genial English writer of the last century, who loved
children, and spoke and wrote of them with infinite tenderness and
affection, describes as “masters in all the learning on the other side of
eight years old.” :

If it be true—as asserted by one of the greatest of English critics
and authors—that Sir Roger de Coverley and Mr. Spectator are more
real than nine-tenths of the heroes of the last’ century, and that almost
the only autobiography to be received entirely without distrust and
disbelief is that of one ROBINSON CRUSOE, Mariner, of York — then

surely those important personages, JACK and JILL, HumMpry Dumpty,
PREFACE.

and my Laby WIND, are real and distinct entities in the mind of
every little child whose nursery education has not been entirely and
unwarrantably neglected; and therefore it has seemed good to the Pub-
lishers to present to the children of the present day the adventures
of those heroes, embellished with whatever pictorial illustration, careful
selection, musical accompaniment, and the advantages of artistic typo-
graphy and detail can contribute, to render them more acceptable to
all English children.

In the arrangement of the musical portion of the volume, especial
care has been taken by MR. ELLIOTT to keep the songs strictly within
the capacity of children’s execution, and the compass of children’s voices.
In his own family he has found a young jury ready to test the various
tunes, and has chosen only those melodies which found prompt accept- ,
ance, were easily remembered, and came trippingly off the. tongue.

The pictorial illustrations of the book have been designed. under
the superintendence of, and engraved by, the BROTHERS DALZIEL.

Among the old favourites a few new aspirants to popularity
will be found; but it is hoped that their presence will be considered
an additional attraction, and in no way lessen the pretensions of the
present volume to be considered a compendium of National Nursery

Rhymes.

Specimen Pages may be had gratis of the Publishers.

Subscribers’ Names will be received by the Publishers, or by all Music and Book-
sellers in the kingdom,
Messrs. Novetto, Ewrr anp Co. beg to announce that, in accordance
with the notice in the August number of the Musical Times, they are
now preparing Handbooks of the Standard Operas (to be issued monthly),
printed in nearly the same size and shape as their octavo Oratorios, under
the editorship of Madame Macfarren, und at a price but little above that
of the ordinary “ Book of Words.”

These works will be printed in vocal score, with a pianoforte accom-
paniment, in which the principal points of the score will be indicated, so
that the audience may be enabled to follow the instrumental as well as
the vocal parts of an opera.

When the composer has set the dialogue to recitative, the same will
be included in this edition, when he has intended portions of the drama
to be spoken, such passages will be printed in their proper place.

An English translation, written by Madame Macfarren, will be
printed together with the original words, whether German, French, or
Italian. This plan has been adopted since, although the latter language
is conventionally associated with operatic music, accepted Italian versions
often depart widely from the sense of the original; moreover the syllabic
arrangement is frequently so much changed as materially to alter the
phrasing. The sole aim of the editor’s translation being to follow the
original as closely as possible in all respects, no other translation could
be printed beside it without causing troublesome discrepancies in the
distribution of notes.

The composer’s directions for phrasing and expression will be strictly
adhered to, on the authority of the best accredited scores, and all inter-
polations, omissions, and alterations of these will be rejected. In this
respect the present edition will be unique among those that have hitherto
appeared in this country.

The price of each Opera, sewed in paper cover, will be 2s. 6d.; or,
bound in scarlet cloth, 4s.
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.

“The original text, so important to the rhythmical expression, is given, together with an English
translation by Madame Macfarren, who also edits the musical portion of each work. ‘The operas are
collated with the original score of the composer, and certain tamperings, omissions, and alterations, that
have formerly passed current in some English adaptations, are thereby tested and corrected. The second
number of the series now referred to consists of Auber’s Fra Diavolo, which is here given for the first
time in this country, according to the published full score. Some years since English stage appropriation
of foreign operas generally included omissions of portions of the original music, and substitutions by the
adapter, or from other extraneous sources. Many of the finest productions of the greatest masters have
undergone this unjustifiable treatment. Not only was the music changed, but even the title was
sometimes altered. * * * We are glad, therefore, to perceive that Messrs. Novello, Ewer and Co. make
it a principle to reject all such alterations—many of which have too long passed current—and to adhere
to a process of restoration by reference to the only authentic source, the full scores of the works as they
left the hands of the composers. Fra Diavolo offers a notable illustration of the remarks just made, this
edition containing several restorations chiefly in the first act.”—Jl/ustrated London News.

‘The price is remarkably moderate—two hundred and sixty pages of the best music for half a crown.
Messrs. Novello’s enterprise deserves and can scarcely fail to attain success.” Spectator.

“The distinctive features of Messrs. Novello, Ewer and Co.’s‘ Original Octavo Edition’ of operas
are such as commend themselves not Jess to musicians than to the general public, who mainly desire a
handbook for use at performances. Each work is printed with its libretto in the original language, and
copious indications of the orchestral scoring are added to the pianoforte part.”—Telegraph.

“The translation has been so capitally made; the sense, and, in the majority of cases, the actual
Saxon equivalent words standing for the German, that it would be difficult for one unaware to which
tongue the music was first set to decide which was the original and which the translation, so completely
displayed is the knowledge of the genius of both languages possessed by Mrs. Macfarren, the translator.
* * Altogether, Novello’s editions of the operas are most carefully and neatly done, and will prove
valuable, as well for the beauty of appearance as for the correctness of production.”—Morning Post.

‘* How such an opera as this (ra Diavolo) can be issued at the price of half-a-crown will appear a
mystery to most people. This edition is widely different from any that has yet been before the public,
inasmuch as it has received careful emendations and extensions at the hands of its accomplished editor
(additions which are now printed for the first time in England). They will be found to add much to its
former value. The size of the volume is a large broad octavo, capitally adapted for singer and player ;
and its printing is quite unparalleled. These volumes are anxiously looke] for both by professors and
amateurs, and we hope the sale will be commensurate with the expense and pains taken to produce s0
valuable an edi'ion.”— Standard.

‘An entire opera—intact in the vocal portions, with the orchestral score compressed into a
pianoforte accompaniment—for half-a-crown, is a remarkable product, even in these days of universal
cheapuess.”— Daily News.

“* Altogether, we find this to be a good, cheap, handsome edition.”—Pall Mall Gazette.

“The general get up of each volume makes it a marvel of cheapness.”—Daily Telegraph.

‘For cheapness and excellence this series is ungsurpassed.”— Press and St. James's Chronicle.

‘‘ For half-a-crown we have here an entire Opera—the vocal portion given intact, and the orchestral
score represented by a pianoforte arrangement, with the valuable feature of leading indications of the
principal instruments employed. * * These cheap editions will not only prove useful for reference .
during performance, but are also good enough in print and paper for preservation in the library.”—
Illustrated London News.

“The latest issue of Messrs. Novello, Ewer and Co.’s operatic handbooks contains the most complete
edition of Don Giovanni ever published. It is a goodly volume of 300 pages—ten pages a penny !—
remarkably well and clearly printed, with an excellent English translation of the text, so arranged as to
be used with convenience by English singers. Some peculiar features are claimed for the edition by
Mrs. Macfarren. It contains all the recitatives, and is, therefore, the complete opera, while a note
assures us that it is also the only pianoforte score ‘which agrees with the author’s MS. as to the notes,
sigus for phrasing and expression, and the stage directions.’ Furthermore, the appendix airs are
inserted in their proper places, to the manifest advantage of whoever wishes to follow a public per-
formance of the work. Here, then, we have a marvel of modern enterprise which should, and doubtless
will, meet its reward.”"—The Graphic.

‘‘ Whether we consider the quantity—for here are 300 pages—or the quality of this remarkable half-
crown Ba it occurs to us that it is really about the cheapest musical publication ever issued from the
press.— Queen.

“Three hundred pages of Mozart's noblest music for half-a-crown? ‘ What next, and next?’ But
even more welcome than extraordinary cheapness is the complete form in which the world-renowned
opera is issued. The publishers seem determined that no fault shall be found on the score of omission,
and not only has every bar of music been printed, with the appendix airs in their proper places, but
even the recitatives are given in full—that is to say, the volume contains Don Giovanni as an entire
thing. Adding to this the fact that music and words are printed in a style not less easy to read than
satisfactory to the eye, reason enough is shown for thanks to the publishers. Mrs. Macfarren has done
her editorial work with great care, and all notes, signs, and stage directions are reproduced in strict
accordance with the composer’s MS. What more need be said ?"—Sunday Times.
