Misc. Comments

Grove Music lists this as purely orchestral music, so there is no direct evidence that it was used as an overture to a larger work, nor is there direct evidence that it was used as incidental music, though the Grove article states that "Paine nourished the Harvard community with over 100 original musical compositions for use in campus plays, concerts and other diversions . . .".
