 C The data above are mosdy from the printed program. In 1976 Lou
Harrison wrote SRC that he had been present at the premiere and
said, "It was one of the most extraordinary works I have ever heard.
 .. . Henry had caused to be made a small, boxlike room on one side
of the stage. This was concealed until the very end by some sort of
curtain arrangement. Inside the box there lived to play a small per-
cussion orchestra and my recollection is that a piano co-existed in the
same box. The playing was then accompanied by ostinati and I recall
that each scene or anyway most scenes had a specific quiet and in-
teresting though not too conspicuous musical ostinato which underlay
the spoken playing of the scene. Occasionally, there would be one
of Henry's piano pieces fitted in. . . . I do not recall any . . . use of
voice [for singing] but it was clear in certain scenes that poetic rhythm
coincided with the percussion rhythm, doubling the theatrical effect."
