 C Based on an "Eskimo theme from a magic ceremonial in homage to
the spirit of animals" (HC's note laid in with score [a]). He came upon
 arecording of the theme about 1931 in E. M. von Hombostel's Berliner
Phonogrammarchiv, where he was working at the time under a Gug-
genheim grant. After the work was published, someone discovered
that the theme's ultimate origin was with Greenland rather than
Alaskan Eskimos.

 D Ca 1948, but as an Anniversary Piece dated 20 Dec 1954 by SRC.
Most of the Anniversary Pieces were chosen and fashioned by HC's
imagination, sometimes out of ideas for larger works that were occu-
pying his thoughts at the time. This, on the other hand, is an arrange-
ment of an orchestral work that had been completed; it came about
as a result of SRC's request. HC had begun it in 1944 or 1945 but
had lost interest in it until she later urged him to finish it if only for
her. The 1954 date results from a simple mistake in the original
