Misc. Comments

Manuscript (copy) at the British Library (MS Mus. 920).

Finished while Parry was alive, in September 1918, but (From Dibble's notes to the Hyperion recording of this work):

"Unfortunately Parry died before the work was published the following year. As an indication of the composer’s regret, the piece bore the following inscription: ‘This work, which death prevented me from giving Charles Hubert Hastings Parry in life, I dedicate to his name in grief. C.V.S.'"
