You'll find it in volume 3 of his School for the Left Hand, available on IMSLP.

You are right!

I have it here! I was looking exclusively for "Coro a Bocca Chiusa" and it appears as Sailor's Chorus in here!

Thanks!

Wonderful, Malcolm. Quite an interesting selection of pieces. I find the Terteryan prelude the most challenging for me with the inner voice being somewhat difficult to bring out--but most interesting!

The American composer and pedagogue Arthur Foote wrote a number of left-hand pieces. Here is my performance of a little waltz which hovers stylistically just on the edge of parlor music, but has a certain charm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oI-DoGzfivQ. There are a couple of slightly different versions of this piece available; the version I recorded differs in some small details from the version linked below. http://javanese.imslp.info/files/imglnk ... 6score.pdf

There are some worthy recent one-handed works as well. These include Robert Helps's difficult "Music for Left Hand. Three études for piano solo" (Associated Music Publishers, 1976) and Leon Kirchner's marvelous (virtuousic, but playable) "L.H. : for piano left hand " (Associated Music Publishers, 2005). Richard Rodney Bennett's "5 Studies for piano" (Universal Edition) includes both a left hand alone and right alone study; each is challenging, but fun to play.
