The Devil and Daniel Webster Folk Opera in One Act Book by Stephen Vincent Benet.[Piano-vocal score]
by MOORE, Douglas 1893-1969
n.p.: Boosey & Hawkes [PN U.S.No. 90], 1943. "Moore had been drawn to theatrical music from an early age. Most of his operas owe a great deal to operetta (especially Gilbert and Sullivan) and early Broadway. The Headless Horseman (1936), an operetta for performance by schoolchildren, and the folk opera The Devil and Daniel Webster (1938) were highly successful, becoming staples at American universities and high schools until late in the 20th century... [His] tuneful, popular style was ideally suited to the depiction of American events." Andrew Stiller in Grove Music Online.. Folio. Original publisher's heather gray wrappers printed in dark blue.
