Misc. Notes Song no.1 was originally based on the poem The Rival by Sylvia Plath, but on deciding to take up this work again, owing to copyright limitations, the composer has put his own text to music without referring to his original manuscript. The music is therefore radically different, the only part retained was the opening four measures.

Song no.1a is a transcript of the original and very sketchy MS of the 1970s, based exclusively on the original poem, but associated with a second poem by the composer to allay copyright contingencies and written much later. Accordingly the song is retitled in the plural as befits the new (much inferior) text. The score is mostly bare of all interpretive markings save a tempo suggestion.

Misc. Comments

This segment is intended to serve as a 'reclaiming center' for those songs (as described in the composer's works list) that were abandoned at one point and never reconsidered. The composer intends to review those 'stumps' and eventually publish those that he believes are worthwhile. They will be numbered accordingly.
