This is what Linda Hartig had to say:
Violet Archer is mentioned several times in this book, most notably on page 225 where a biographical sketch is included. Six of her works are mentioned: The Bell (W115), Fanfare and Passacaglia (W12), landscapes (W130), Prelude and Incantation (W26), Cantata Sacra (W116), and the opera, Sganarelle (W2).
