The citations bill this event as the "Seventh Grand [Sacred] Sunday Concert," which was a subset of the Popular Garden Concert series. (The New-Yorker Staats-Zeitung und Herold uses "sacred;" the English papers do not. See Thomas Popular Garden Concert: 6th on 06/16/67 and Thomas Popular Garden Concert: 12th on 06/23/67 for instances of "sacred" in both German and English papers.) A season pass for $10, which was offered at the beginning of the Popular Garden series in June, included admission to the Sunday concerts.
The citations mark Gounod's La Colombe entr'acte as "new;" this indicates that it is either new to America or new to the Popular Garden concert series. (The first concert at which Thomas began to premiere new works in this concert series was the Thomas Popular Garden Concert: 19th on 07/02/67.)
