The first, English Rose, was written by Edward German Jones, an English violinist, conductor and composer born in 1862. The English Rose is taken from a song for tenor: "Dan Cupid hath a garden', from his opera Merrie England, composed in 1902. The second piece is from Catalini's opera La Wally. This arrangement is taken from the aria: "Ebben? Ne andrò lontano' ("Farewell to my Home').
