The 1927 Longwood Sketches of Firmin Swinnen

Additionally, I have had three Swinnen articles published in the newsletter of the Belgian “Studiecentrum Vlaamse Muziek.” The July installment was about the “Longwood Sketches” and may be of interest to you:
Thanks for your effort in preserving this important work.
