During Geibel's lifetime, parlor music was very popular and within that genre, “waltz-songs” became a staple. The Joys of Spring Waltz is typical of this form and was published by Geibel in several versions, piano solo, chamber ensemble, women’s trio and piano/vocal. This version includes full score/harp (or piano) and horn (with substitute part for viola) and oboe (with substitute parts for flute, violin, or Bb clarinet). Cover art included.
