Tekla Bądarzewska-Baranowska (1834 - 1861)

The amateur Polish composer Tekla Bądarzewska-Baranowska is remembered for one composition, The Maiden’s Prayer. This won worldwide popularity after its publication in Warsaw in 1856, although it is a salon piece of a type common in the 19th century. It subsequently appeared in arrangement after arrangement, winning a success that the composer was never able to recapture.
