The Mystery of Duffy's Cut was inspired by an apparition and a series of strange occurrences that have fueled interest in "Duffy’s Cut," a mass burial site in Malvern, Pennsylvania where 57 Irish immigrant workers died mysteriously while doing work for the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1832. This tone poem chronicles the life and times of these men. This title is available in SmartMusic.
