‘Beautiful Dreamer’
by Stephen C. Foster

9th July, 2020

From her home in Brisbane, Xenia Puskarz Thomas performs Stephen Foster’s popular parlour song ‘Beautiful Dreamer’.

The sentimental ballad was published posthumously in 1864 and was reported to have been composed just days prior to the American songwriter’s death. It has since been recorded by an extensive range of artists including the likes of Roy Orbison, Bing Crosby, Thomas Hampson and Jerry Lee Lewis!
