About This Print

This song sheet, Senow No. 322, was issued in July 1923 by the music publisher Senow Ongaku Shuppansha under the direction of Kōjirō Senow.  The artist Takehisa Yumeji (1884-1934) designed around 280-300 covers for Senow, this design being the cover for Johannes Brahms' Opus 63, No. 5 "Meine Liebe ist Grün" (1873) with lyrics by the poet Felix Schumann (1854-1879). The lyrics were translated into Japanese from the German by the composer and lyricist Keizō Horiuchi 堀内敬三 (1897-1983).
