Misc. Comments

  • The tagging has assumed a full orchestra. This opera was not very successful, and it looks like only the vocal score was published.
  • Both Gaelic and English have been tagged; apparently the opera was written in Gaelic but even the premiere had to be largely in English due to opposition.
