Hebrew Melodies

Quick Reference

A collection of short poems by Byron, some written during the early days of his marriage, published 1815. Many are on scriptural subjects, but some are love songs and lyrics: the volume was published by Jewish composer Isaac Nathan (?1791–1864), who arranged some to traditional Hebrew melodies. The poems include ‘She walks in beauty’ and ‘The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold’.
