Among the two legends which can be found in this publication, the first is entitled St. Francois d'Assise: La predication aux oiseaux (St. Francis of Assisi Preaching to the Birds). St. Francis established the Franciscan order which Liszt dedicated himself to as a secular confrere in 1865 following his ordination. Within this work, Liszt draws inspiration from the 14th-15th century anthology Fioretti di San Francesco which tells of St. Francis preaching to a group of birds. The second legend St. Francis of Paola Walking on the Waves, is based on the theologian Giuseppe Miscimarra's story of St. Francis of Paola and his establishment of Ordo Minimorum (the smallest Franciscan order). This edition is unique in that it contains an alternative, easier version of the second legend in addition to the definitive version. This publication contains not only musical scores of excellent quality, but also a detailed foreword in English and German as well as critical notes in English.
