catee).

to the conclusion that their garish and uncontrollable aspects took
away more than they added.

in the New School Auditorium, New York, by a string group con-
ducted by Carlos Surinach

 C On his programs, HC soon inverted the title to The Cauldron of Fire.
At the head of source (a) HC has written out?in blue-green ink-
the "Irish Legend according to John Varian":
In the center of the land of the high gods burned a cosmical cauldron
of living green flame. All the gods partook of the flame as a food for
the fire of their souls. The flame was customarily slow moving, but
before the birth of a new god it would increase in intensity until none
could look at it.
This piece is not to be confused with the early piano piece The
Cauldron (no. 78a) nor with the song The Chauldron (no. 238).
