Custodial History

These handwritten parts were specifically scored for Susan Henry by Anthony Prospect who was the arranger for the Valley Harps Steelband in preparation for 'Pan is Beautiful V World Steelband Festival'. Since Mrs. Henry, a member of Valley Harps, was able to read music, he felt they would be useful to her. Mrs. Henry donated them to The University of the West Indies in 2002.
