Soldier Songs and Love Songs

Excerpt from Soldier Songs and Love Songs In issuing this collection of Songs, the author makes the following acknowledgments: - "The American Ca ira" was suggested while reading the French song of that name, from which song the phrase ca ira alone was appropriated. In "The Song of William the Conqueror," his characteristic oath, "By the splendor of God!" is used. In the "Death Song of the Enfants Perdus," a few remembered lines or fragments have been appropriated from an anonymous and almost forgotten English ballad. "Burke of the Brave Brigade" was written in memory of the late Dennis F.Burke, the last commander of the Irish Brigade in the battle of Gettysburg. "The Custer Wail" was composed in a dream, in 1877. In the last two stanzas of "Marshall Ney's Farewell," his own language translated is used in nearly half the lines.
