Program Notes

Atlantis is a continent mentioned in Plato’s History, and extended across the Atlantic Ocean approximately from Europe to Yucatan. It is the subject of an exhaustive volume by Ignatius Donnelly and has also served as inspiration for several novelists. It is believed that this continent was the home of a great race which conquered and civilized the world. The Azore Islands are considered to be the tops of its lofty mountains, and are all that now remains above water of the great country
