Misc. Comments

The consensus numbering of McEwen's string quartets has changed since they were published, as he excluded his first two quartets in an accounting of them (apparently for Grove's Dictionary ca.1950? the last of them dates from 1947 which would make sense.) -String Quartet No.8 is now referred to as Quartet No.6 (in A major, Biscay), e.g. and this work is no.7. It was, however, published as quartet no.9.

It is also consensus to refer to this quartet as being in E major, but for what reason eludes me. Mystification, assuredly. Minor-mode takes up so much of the work that by most definitions I think the mode would probably be taken reasonably to be minor, the major-mode conclusion being unexceptional...
