As can be seen on the cover of the original sheet music it is interesting to note that the subtitle of Syncopated Waltz is given more prominence that the title of True Love itself. This was perhaps commercially necessary to emphasise yet another "latest" fad. Elsewhere some publishers wrote reams in ensuring that such pieces were correctly interpreted.
True Love is a lovely piece in ABBACCA form with a 4-bar introduction. Particular attention should be paid to the changes of pace. Whilst an all tenor/bass affair, the basses are required to alternate to descant and tenor for the first 2 bars.
True Love was published by Frank K. Root and Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
Scored Valse Moderato, a tempo of 150 seems about right.
