[679]P Materials on rental from Peters since 1969
 C SRC reports that in 1949 HC presented Charles Ives with the "dedica-
tion" of this work for Ives's 75th birthday (20 Oct 1949), following
reminiscences about the "big sings" Ives remembered from his boyhood
in Connecticut.
Little Concerto [arranged for piano and orchestra] see no. 620b
680 Hamlet Incidental Music to the Play by Shakespeare, for Men's Voices
and Instrumental Ensemble
 D [Jul-Dec?] 1945
 I The score does not differentiate between pit and stage players, so even
with a list of stage instruments HC jotted down on the draft of This
Is America (no. 643) one can be sure only of the combined ensemble:
 1(dbling rec) 111 (dbling rec?) 1100 2 perc (Javanese water-buffalo
bell or dinner bell without clapper, 2 gongs, tom-tom, 2 sn dr, b
dr) gui or lute, mandolin, pf strs str (2 vn, va or va d'amore, vc
or va da gamba, db)
 M (a) Ink full score with cues on 14 masters
(b) Pencil sketches with cues; in addition: (1) typewritten directions
for "ghost-sounds," 2p; (2) MS letter, Robert Breen to HC, dated
 2Jul 1945, accompanying "20 more pages of script"; (3) type-
written script of play as planned for this production, 68p;
(4) typewritten article by Cpl. Robert Porterfield (erstwhile
director of Barter Theatre, Abingdon, VA), "Expansion of the
Theatre: How?" (22p)
 C The production (producer Robert Breen) was planned for the 1945-46
season, but financial problems were insurmountable. Apparently the
music was never used.
681 Fiddle and Sing [for piano?]
Faster
 D [1945?]
 M (a) Pencil draft complete as to melody alone: 26m, plus repeats and
D.C., on 3 staves, 2p. Very little besides melody.
(b) Pencil draft, incomplete in 14m on 3 staves on 2p
 C Possibly this was to have continued the series of easy piano pieces sold
to McKinley Publishers in 1944 (see no. 667).
