CommentsA fragment of the performance material written in Zdeněk Zouhar's hand. Only two parts are extant in ZZ. The solo soprano part is written in black ink on 14-stave music paper. The heading of the first and only page of this part designates the role ([underlined:] "Studánka" [The Spring]), the title, and the name of the composer. This is followed by a page of notation written in one system with two solo passages (bb. 107-34, 205-22). The piano part is written in back ink on 12-stave music paper in Zdeněk Zouhar's hand. It comprises a title page with the name of the composer, the title, and the designation of the part. The following 7 pages of musical text are written on two foios and contain pencilled markings by pianist Věra Zouharová. The piano part is signed and dated on the last page by Zdeněk Zouhar: "Zd. 10. 1. 1956 | Brno". Seeing that this date comes after the date og the premiere, it may be presumed that this is a copy of the piano part from P1. The handwritten comments are probably connected to the repeat performances of the cantata.
