Additional Details

The apparent first American edition of an instrumental work first issued in London in 1881. A London edition was issued with text as "The Victories of Judah after the Captivity, as Achieved by Mattathias & his Son Judas Maccabaeus: A Sacred Cantata with Historical Readings, in the Form of a Service of Song (with original words and music). The poems and connective readings written and compiled by James Shepherd; the music composed expressly for the work by Geo. Shinn." The present piece is listed under "new music received" from Oliver Ditson in the 9 July 1882 Boston Globe. This edition not traced in OCLC.
