Misc. Comments

  • "An unaccompanied folk song Scena, Based on traditional airs transcribed by the composer after the singing of Mr. Ralph Stoney and one unknown."
  • Oddly, Grove Music lists this as an oratorio, along with two other oratorios based on the Bible, but Music in the Mine contains nothing that could be construed as sacred.
