Himalya is a Sanskrit word which means "the Abode of Snow" and this composition is dedicated to one Mme Olga Petrova who apparently graces the cover of the original sheet music who perhaps was the first singer of the same named song "with clever words" by Frank H. Warren. Its form is AABBBB with a 6-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude separating the BB- strains whereby the A- and B-strains are written in the major keys of Ab and F respectively. A great piece to dance to and belongs with Indianola in the same programme.
Himalya was published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
