Errata

Some newer editions may already have these corrections. If you have an older copy, please contact me for a complimentary updated score.

  • the opening dynamic for the singer should be a forte
  • on p. 33 (the second page of the song) there is an incorrrect rhythm in the right hand piano part. This is in 15 of the song (which in older editions is incorrectly marked 25). The rhythms should be eighth rest, quarter chord, eighth rest, half note.
  • in 37, the tempo should start a bit under a tempo and ramp up to speed, coming to a sudden halt on the eighth note before 41.
  • The measure numbers are incorrect in some earlier versions. Measure 13 was numbered measure 23 and the mistake compounded. This is now corrected.
  • in 37, the tempo should start a bit under a tempo and ramp up to speed, coming to a sudden halt on the eighth note before 41 (which in older editions is incorrectly marked 51). In addition, from 39-40 (marked incorrectly 49-50 in older editions), there should be a crescendo (not a decrescendo) leading into the slow section.
  • If you’d like, you can slide down an extra half step on the last glissando
