"John Knowles Paine (1839-1906) was a leader in composing choral music. His earliest major work was his Mass in D (1865); the oratorio St. Peter (1872) was his first choral work to be performed. Two short cantatas were followed by a more extended effort, The Nativity, composed for the sixth triennial festival of the Handel and Haydn Society of Boston in 1883, with its premiere occurring on 2 May, conducted by the composer. The cantata sets twenty-seven stanzas of John Milton's early ode, On the Morning of Christ's Nativity (1629), in three movements, with SATB soloists, SATB chorus, and full orchestra, including harp and organ." --

Symphony no. 2 in A major : Spring : op. 34 by John Knowles Paine( )

18 editions published between 1880 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Knowles Paine (1839-1906), the earliest of the Second New England School of American composers, was the first to gain the compositional craft needed to produce works equal in quality to those of his European contemporaries. His Symphony No. 2 in A Major (Spring) was first performed in March 1880 and was published in full score and parts by Arthur P. Schmidt later that year. His first symphony, premiered in 1876, had shown a rather strict support for Beethoven's classicism, but the Spring symphony exhibits a richer chromatic vocabulary, colorful orchestration, and Paine's first use of thematic transformation in an orchestral work. The composer attached programmatic titles to each of the four movements, although these were not stressed in the earliest performances -- and did not appear in the published score -- for fear of criticism from Boston's conservative music community opposed to program music. But concert programs from 1888 onwards included the titles. The present edition corrects many errors from the original published score and makes available an excellent example of Paine's mature style, reportedly his favorite among his orchestral works." --
