||*The Overture to The Song of Hiawatha was composed in 1901 for the first performance of the complete trilogy that year. It published separately as Op.30 No.3. In the last year of his life (1912) Coleridge-Taylor composed the Hiawatha Ballet Music, Op.84. The cantatas are usually performed separately, especially the first one.
