 T "Texts Discovered and Contributed by Nicolas Slonimsky" (caption).
The 3 poems are in a Philip Hale scrapbook, one of many he gave
to the Music Division of the Boston Public Library. Slonimsky tells
WL that Richard Appel (longtime chief of that division) called them
to his attention. The first poem is from an unidentified American
newspaper of about 1884. Poem 2, 6 quatrains headed "Modern
Opera" and credited to Henry Tyrrell, was printed on p8, col7, of
the New York World for 25 Feb 1909. Poem 3, with no heading and
no credit line, appears in col6 on p2, section D, of the Boston Herald
for 20 Apr 1924.
 F One of the songs, not identified on the program, was sung by con-
tralto Radiana Pazmor at a Pro Musica concert, Biltmore Hotel, Los
Angeles, 14 Mar 1938; the pianist was not identified. From HC's let-
ter of 18 Mar 1938 to Pazmor we learn which song it was: he writes
"I am delighted that you sang 'Hark from the Pit.' ..."
 M (a) Ink fair copy on 14 masters

(b) Reel

(3) Hornpipe. Vivace, p21-36
 D 6 Apr 1938. Movements 1 and 2 were written individually, for Percy
Grainger to conduct: 2 Jul 1937 and 2 Nov 1937 were the respective
dates when HC wrote Grainger that they were completed and the
materials being shipped. On 23 Feb 1938 he wrote Grainger that he
was writing "another bit" to go with the Reel and Caoine, and sug-
gested that "Celtic Suite" would be a good natural tide. HC's letter
to Grainger of 6 Apr 1938 reports that the Hornpipe (and thus the
Set) is finished.
 I In his letter to Grainger of 6 Apr 1938, HC lists "66 parts alto-
gether"?by which he means not 66 musically different parts but
enough to go on 66 different stands (7 separate parts for clarinets 2
and 3, for example). His score calls for: 224( + Ei», a, & b cl)2 5 sax
(s, 2 a, t, bar) 4 tpt, 2 a hn, 2 bar hn, 3 tbn, tuba timp, perc.
