Orchestra: Overture to "The Song of Hiawatha"
Arthur Fear and Orchestra: "Hiawatha's Vision"

Coleridge-Taylor's trilogy "The Song of Hiawatha" comes to an end on a note of sadness which has yet something of bright hope mingled with it. The third part is called "Hiawatha's Departure," and before he goes he tells his people that one day the paleface will take their country from them. The prophecy is first made by Iagoo. Listeners will remember that he is the great boaster; at the Wedding Feast, the first part of the story, he entertains the guests by 'his immeasurable falsehoods.' Now, when he tells his people that in his wanderings he has seen a great canoe with a hundred warriors, all with white faces, they listen as though it were only one more of his wild imaginings, and laugh at his story. But Hiawatha warns them not to scoff. He knows that all lagoo tells them is true; he himself has seen it in a vision.
