Paul Vane or Lorena's Reply


  • This is an answer song to "Lorena"; it was written by the same lyricist and composer, Henry De Lafayette Webster (1824-96) and the unrelated Joseph Philbrick Webster (1819-75). It is a poor imitation of the original with the same or virtually the same melody.
    An edition was published by C. Sheard of Holborn, London, in 1874, though it appears to have been published initially in an American compilation, The Jack Morgan Songster of 1864. >>
