Foster - Beautiful Dreamer

Sheet music for recorder

Info: "Beautiful Dreamer" is a parlor song by Stephen Foster, published posthumously in March 1864. The first edition states on its title page that it is the last song written by Foster, but this information was revealed not to be true. Although this piece has little in common with the songwriter's earlier efforts, like “Oh! Susanna”, which had launched his career, “Beautiful Dreamer” exemplifies Foster's final sentiments and has become one of America's most beloved serenades.
