Good Morrow (Cowen, Frederic Hymen)
Arrangements and Transcriptions
For 2 Voices and Keyboard (Raphaelson)
William D. Raphaelson (fl.1850s–fl.1884)
St. Louis: J.L. Peters, 1883. Plate 87-3.
For Soprano and Alto or Tenor and Bass. W.D. Raphaelson seems a more likely guess for "arr. by Raphaelson" than does Louis Raphaelson (1867, born in Herford to Aron Raphaelson and Sara Löwenstein, died before 1945?) judging from patterns in other JL Peters scores and others. (Checking various scores arranged by or composed by him LoC one sees "W.D. Raphaelson" is probably William D. This score has only his surname.)
