Notes: This is based on an improvisation in Bethlehem Chapel in June 1973, preparing incidental music for a production of Shakespeare's play in the summer theater program in the new Trapier Theater at St. Albans School, under the direction of Ted Walsh. and Howard Witt. Two songs and some incidental music had been written, and upon those sketches I based the overture, improvising with the tape recorder on. It was "composed" in 1992 when putting the songs into computer-engraving.
