My dearest heart

First line:
All the dreaming is broken through
author of text

The ready market for ballads provided a source of income for many aspiring young Victorian composers, of whom the future composer of the Savoy Operas was a prime example. ‘My Dearest Heart’ was published in 1876, the year after Trial by Jury, and proved one of his most successful creations in the genre. The author of the words was uncredited.
