|Title||Untitled piece in E major|
|Subtitle||For piano or violin and piano|
Fair copy situated on the top two systems of the page. Britten has retrospectively (c. 1933-4) written '1922' at the top of the page. However, the handwriting and compositional style suggest an earlier date of circa 1921. Bars 3-8 are crossed out. Underneath the piece there is a short paragraph in Britten's handwriting about harmonic and melodic minor keys. There are also some jottings which are probably by his composition teacher at the time, Ethel Astle.
|Extent||1 page of 64 page manuscript [2v]|
Pencil; 23.3 x 29.8. Shares a volume with other sources. See Related Records
