Blake published a folio of her works in 1887 that included; Safely Rocked in Mother's Arms, Don't Tread on the Daisies and Tapping on the Panes. Giuliani played the guitar, Lyra guitar, was an accomplished vocalist, and cellist - who played cello in the world premier of Beethoven's 7th symphony. While much sheer beauty is gained in the strophes, love music and funeral procession, the sense of elemental emotion and youthful discovery (both the lovers' and the composer's) tends to be curtailed.
