This delightful lullaby Dream Days, composed by a certain Glenn W. Ashleigh, was an item in the "Colonial Series" of sheet music published by Victor Kremer no doubt cashing-in on and harking-back to the "good old days" in the deep southern states of the USA in Confederate times. The tune is of exquisite simplicity, an absolute joy for beginners and lends itself particularly well for recorder adaptation. The deeper tenor and bass recorder timbres especially bring out the artlessness of this musical jewel. A tempo of 100 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Dream Days was published by Victor Kremer Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
This recorder adaptation is respectfully dedicated to Ursula Horstmann, recorder player, former member of Blue Monday, of Bremen, Germany.
