Niels W. Gade, Elegie
This is an American transcription by an unknown hand of the first movement of Niels Gade's Aquarelles, Op. 90. The best-known transcription of this piece was by the Irishman Ebenezer Prout. This is a rather simpler version and seems to antedate Prout's. Whoever the transcriber was he or she seems to have played a two manual and pedal organ of around 20 stops, perhaps a Hook or Johnson, built in around 1865.
