to inject the feeling of a chamber work and to avoid too much con-
stant tutti."
547bMusic Lovers' Set of Five [for flute, violin, cello, and piano]
(1) Allegro
(2) Interlude
(3) Moderate pomposo ma vivo
(4) Andante con moto
(5) Allegro
 D The first-performance program announces this work as specially com-
posed for the Music Lovers Society, a group of musicians in the Bay
Area interested in chamber music (especially out-of-the-way chamber
music), headed by Miss Margaret Tilly, then in charge of music at
the San Francisco Public Library. The claim of "specially composed
for this concert" was repeated by Alfred Frankenstein, "San Fran-
cisco Rejuvenated," Modem Music 18:3 (Mar-Apr 1941), pl85-87.
HC, on his list of works composed during Jut-Dec 1940, describes
the work as "arranged from older piano solos for chamber combina-
tion." The 5 movement headings, taken above from the printed con-
cert program, are nevertheless essentially identical with those of
 Toccanta?which present an extremely rare pattern.
 F In Community Playhouse, San Francisco, 7 Jan 1941, by a quartet
from the Music Lovers Society: Merrill Jordan (flute), Frank Hauser
(violin, the part presumably arranged from the soprano vocalise of
Toccanta), Herman Reinburg (cello), Margaret Tilly (piano)
 M This MS was at one time in the possession of the late Alfred Franken-
stein, music critic for the San Francisco Chronicle.
