Those are detailed in the Orchestral section of Donna K. Anderson's worklist, The Works of Charles T. Griffes: A Descriptive Catalogue (Ann Arbor, 1984). Joanne Falletta, are you reading this?

Rental scores can be interesting in other ways, too. I remember seeing an unpublished rental score of Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Weber that had Toscanini's markings all over it. (Clearly Toscanini wore glasses during rehearsals.) So while we may not have a published recording of the work by Toscanini (not 100% sure about that), his take on the score has doubtless influenced a number of other conductors who came since.

There was a recording of the orchestral arrangements of these songs back in the 1970s as part of some US government funded project (I think around 1976 as part of the US Bicentennial) to record compositions by various US composers; an entire LP was devoted to Griffes.  I am not googling the details but I recall a stunning recording of the SONG OF THE DAGGER which isn't one of the composer's better known works, to say the least.

cheers, Steve Shutt
