Mona An Opera in Three Acts The Poem by Brian Hooker. [Piano-vocal score]
by PARKER, Horatio 1863-1919
New York: G. Schirmer [PN 22727], 1911. "After writing incidental music for two plays... [Parker] composed music for two grand operas: Mona, which won a prize offered by the Metropolitan Opera Company and received four performances in that house (1912); and Fairyland...""[Parker's] career as a composer can be divided into three periods... The second period was marked by an increasing concern for dramatic expression in several of the larger choral works, and the fulfilment, with Mona, of a desire to write an opera. The contrasting, sectional structures of the first period gave way to an increasingly unified, highly expressive style... [in Mona, with its] pervading chromaticism, vacillating tonalities and sometimes angular, disjunctive melodies." William Kearns in Grove Music Online.. Octavo.
