[491a] tide expanded to "Four Casual Developments (Victorian Gentilities)"
to wit: a. In a Garden, b. Parlor Piece, c. Elegy, d. Pastoral. Only
 4of the 6 movements were used, and the foregoing headings would
fit the 4 movements used in the following arrangement.
491b Suite for Woodwind Quintet
(1) Allegretto, pl-3
(2) Allegro, p3-5
(3) Adagio cantabile, p5-6
(4) Allegretto con moto, p6-8
 D These 4 movements are arrangements of movements 2, 4, 5, and 6
of the Six Casual Developments. In later years HC, in applying for
copyrights, for instance, seems to have been uncertain which work
was derived from the other; but the letter to Ives quoted above (under
no. 491, D) leaves no doubt. He continues by remarking on the "6
short movements" and says "it is the first time I have written shorter
works for a long time"?something he would not have said if he had
recendy composed 4 of the movements as part of this Suite. The lat-
ter was recorded in 1934 (for New Music Quarterly Recordings) by
Georges Barrere and members of his Litde Symphony. Richard Franko
Goldman, in his notes for the first performance, says that the suite
was written "about 1933 for Georges Barrere" and the manuscripts
(score and parts) were "lost" until 1947.
 F Goldman discovered the work in going through Barrere's effects after
the latter's death, and arranged for its first concert performance: 21
Feb 1948 at an Alice M. Ditson Chamber Concert, McMillin Theater,
Columbia University, New York, by James Pellerite (fl), Melvin
Kaplan (ob), Marvin UUer (cl), John Shults (hn), and Tina di Dario
(bn).
 P Score (lOp) and parts, ed. with an introduction by Richard Franko
Goldman, copyright 1949, Merrymount Music Press (later Presser)
 C For the recording and the McMillin Theater performance, the move-
ments were given captions not retained in the publication: Andante,
Jig, Chorale, and Allegro.
492 Sunset/Rest Two Songs for Low Voice [and piano]
(1) Sunset. Moderate, p2-3
(2) Rest. Adagio, p4-5
