Stan McDaniel writes "I would have written the prototype for my In Memoriam Tolkien suite even before Tolkien's passing since that earlier version, for small instruments, was not titled as such. The first performance of the suite was in 1977 by all-volunteer Sonoma State University music students playing at an OCTOCON sci-fi convention in Santa Rosa CA."
NOTE: "The Passing of the Master was also performed in 2002 by the San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra (Mark Alburger conducting).
