Hess 195: альтернативная версия песни When far from home of our youth we have rang'd WoO 153 №11

"When Far from the Home", (Pub. 1813) (Replaced by WoO 153 #11) 1812 Beethoven composed two settings for this song at about the same time; he sent them both to Thomson with a note to the effect "I have composed No. 10 of the last ten airs twice. You can insert in your collection whichever of the two pleases you more." We find this version to be just as pleasing as that which found its way into Thomson's publications and the Kinsky/Halm catalog; it certainly stood no lower in Beethoven's estimation than the other version.
