I have just found this piece listed as by William Baines, which I have never seen before, despite having over the years kept my eye open for anything by him.
But I am just wondering if there has been a mistake and this is not by William Baines. Of course, I do not really know for sure, and am just raising the question - but not only is it *wildly* out of keeping with William Baines' usual style, but also the title is written in Russian script (it looks like a manuscript copy), whereas Baines was British and would not have used Russian script, and if it is a copyist's manuscript rather than a composer's manuscript, it seems rather improbable that it would have been copied by a Russian copyist.
Of course this *could* be a Russian edition of a very uncharacteristic piece by Baines - but the anomaly is enough at least to make me wonder if a mistake has been made in identifying this piece.
Does anyone know?
