Misc. Comments

Sent to Kistner for publication September 1869, according to preface. (Further- again according to Horton - "He received £15 payment for the work in December 1869, with publication of the score and orchestral parts taking place the following month.") Composed over a period of 2 weeks, finished the morning of its premiere. (Parts must have been written out in some haste...)
