Hiawatha's Wedding Feast was the first major success enjoyed by Coleridge-Taylor. It was commissioned by the London publisher Novello after Edward Elgar recommended the young Afro-English composer to them following the premiere of his 'Ballade in A minor' at the Three Choirs Festival in Birmingham. The new work was completed fast and the vocal score was in print months before the premiere, with sales so brisk Novello commissioned a subsequent cantata. The premiere was a major event, given in London on 11 November 1898 under the baton of the composer's teacher Charles Villiers Stanford. This new vocal score is an enhanced facsimile of the Novello edition which has been scaled to a larger, more readable format. Unlike so many of the on-demand scores now available, this one comes with all the pages and the images have been thoroughly checked to make sure it is readable. The score is beautifully printed on off-white stock with a quality cover. As with all PLP scores a percentage of each sale is donated to the amazing online archive of free music scores and recordings, IMSLP - Petrucci Music Library.
