(notes to New World recording, available online at, claim composer was 47 at time of composition, i.e. that date was 1900-1. This is probably a typo. 1890 is on the score, and 1889 is on our list.)

According to Tawa ("Arthur Foote: A Musician in the Frame of Time and Place", p.159), performed December 2 1889 (perhaps earlier?).
