961 [Fragment of trio for oboe, viola, and cello?]
Slowly
 D "Late 1926?" suggested by association with A Composition (no. 406)
?not always a valid reason in the case of HC, but here we seem to
have the last in a series of trios that began after HC's army period.
 M Pencil sketch of 7m, no beginning or end
962 For Violin [and piano]
Slowly - Cantabile
 D [1924-26?] Possibly written to be played with Leo Under, HC's
violinist co-performer in those years.
 M Pencil score complete in 19m, plus D. C., on Ip, with complete violin
part on facing page. Those 2 pages are the versos of p5-6 of no. 956,
dating from almost 10 years earlier. Even stranger is the fact that
below the "Violin Part" are words and 9m of tune (alone) in which
the note shapes suggest HC*s hand of 1913-14, while the words refer
to the "gestating future seed ... of Lir," said Lir being one of the
Bamba characters (no. 219). HC first knew John 0. Varian at Menio
Park, several years before the production of Bamba at Halcyon, and
might have undertaken to set something about Lir to music then; but
both For Violin pages, including the Lir fragment, are on versos of
p5-6 of Clusteriana No. 1\
963T["2 tiny pieces for children" presumably for piano]
 D 25 Jan 1937. An HC letter to Olive Cowell of that date mentions such
pieces as having been composed at the instigation of the Downtown
Music School, New York.
964t[Early American hymn arrangements for men's chorus and band]
 D HC to Harry Cowell, 26 Jan 1944: "I ... arranged two [early
American hymns] by [William] Billings and [Stephen] Jenks for band
and men's chorus and these will be performed by the U.S. Navy Band
and Chorus in Washington over the air (no date set)."
965 Symphony No. 3, "The Camp Meeting," by Charles Ives Prefaces,
Footnotes, Corrections and Revisions by Henry Cowell
 P Miniature score (33p) copyright 23 April 1964 by AMP
