Misc. Comments

Folders 93 to 96 and 100 to 105 of the De Koven manuscript collection at Brandeis University contains perhaps a complete full score. Folder 208.20 would appear to contain the complete printed instrumental parts. Date of composition taken from here. Librettist also appears as Joseph W. Herbert.
