The Vale of Clwyd WoO 155 nr. 19, early version, Hess 191 (mp3)
Performer: Mark S. Zimmer
Author: Mark S. Zimmer
This is an incomplete early attempt at this folk song, consisting only of the vocal section, with the corresponding piano part. Presumably this was Beethoven's composition, but it should be noted that it exists only in a copy made by Anton Schindler in aut. 29.I, fo. 13v. In spite of Schindler's dubious reputation, the fact that this song draft is so little-known argues in favor of its authenticity.
Think not I'll leave fair Clwyd's vale; To me tis fondly dear! For still its scenes those hours reveal When I was blest, When I was blest and Henry here. ---Mrs. Opie
