Into the Gloaming by Lennie Niehaus. For string orchestra. Grade 1. Score and set of parts. Published by TRN Music Publisher (TU.OCGLO1).
In the Gloaming was tremendously popular in the United States in 1877. With words written by Meta Orre, the tune "in the Irish style" was by Annie Fortescue Harrison, later Lady Hill. Whether Miss Orred knew the story of the composer's life or not, the facts are (purportedly) that Annie Fortescue Harrison, daughter of a Scottish MP, had been in love with Lord Arthur Hill (County Down, Ireland), but the marriage was frowned upon by his family. Miss Harrison went to England and became a composer, writing the music to this song (as well as instrumentals and musicals). Lord Hill married another woman named Anne, who died the following year. A few years later, at a concert in England, he heard this song performed and the lyrics and tune strongly reminded him of his lost love, so he tracked her down and he married her.
