Misc. Comments

Weld wrote incidental music and several light operas. In tagging this page, I have made an assumption that this is incidental music based on the fact that a web article (Wikipedia? - ES) on the librettist mentioned that he wrote song lyrics, such as "How Sweet Thou Art to Me". If he had written the libretto for a whole light opera, or for all the music in it, this sentence would have been worded differently. Since this is mentioned as a single song, it seems to be incidental music. Any firm evidence of what The Unwelcome Guest was would be welcome.
