CommentsImmediately after completing the cantata the composer wrote to Polička that he "has to have copies made" (from letter Mar 1956-11-14). Due to the political situation, he postponed sending two copies to Prague ([R1], [R2]) until early January 1957. His first mention of them is 9 January 1957 in a letter to Bureš (BurM 1957-01-09). He delayed sending them, and so in a letter from 12 January 1957 he specifies to Bureš: "I will send you the score of the Legend tomorrow; I am sorry that it is not written neatly, but I have troubles with my right hand, and so the handwriting did not work out as I had hoped, especially the text and in some paces also the music." (from letter BurM 1957-01-12). The copy intended for Miloslav Bureš [R1] is not extant.
