    NOTE: The repetition of numbers in this cue sheet is simplified by the use of the “Luz Symphonic Color Guide” sold by Music Buyers Corporation, 1520 Broadway, New York City.  The color suggested for repetition of numbers designates the Mood of Emotion, and is used as a code for such repetitions.
