On Using This Catalog

required the instruments are enumerated one by one-though not always with HC's full instructions, such as to swathe a gong in a blanket on the floor. With bands the brasses have to be spelled out as to cornets, trumpets, baritone horn, and so forth.

"F" section. Information regarding the first public performance of a work-where, when. and by whom-when believable documentation could be found.

"M" section. M, for "manuscript," is often the most wordy section in an entry. The designations (a), (b), and so on indicate HC holographs and facsimile reproduc- tions of them. Copyist's manuscripts are designated (x), (y), or (z). Degree of completeness is indicated for shorter works (or larger ones, too, if incomplete), and the number of measures is given for pieces of three pages' length or less. Copies may be hand copies in pencil or ink, microfilm, photostats negative or positive, ozalid prints made from master transparencies, direct prints or reverse- image negatives or positives produced by the once-popular DTR (diffusion- transfer-reversal) process, or machine copies made on Xerox, 3M, or other quick- copy machines. The difference between an "ink draft" or "ink copy" and an "ink fair copy" is essentially that the latter is usually made from an earlier draft and that care is taken in spacing, in forming letters and notes, in choosing the best places for page turns, and in other matters leading to greater regularity and handsomeness of appearance as well as to greater ease in reading.

"P" section. Information about publication of a work, including whether it can be bought or whether performing materials are on rental. The copyright date pro- vides the official date of publication except when (in the years before 1978) the copyright secured was in the "E Unpublished" category. The fact that copies were once for sale does not, of course, guarantee that they still are, but a pub- lisher can generally supply photocopies if the sale stock is exhausted. A direc- tory of HC's publishers will be found following this guide.

"C" section. A catchall section for commentary, or nuggets of information not ap- propriate to one of the sections above.
