BRAZEN MASK. English (?), Reel. A tune called "Brazen Mask" also appears in the 1811 music manuscript collection of Samuel Morse, of Newburyport, Massachusetts. Brazen Mask is the title of a ballet-pantomime first staged at Covent Garden in 1802. Lyrics were by Thomas Dibdin, with music by Davy and Mountain. The protagonist is a robber chief who goes by the name of "Brazen Mask" (which seems a contradiction), but who turns out to be a Baron.

Printed source: Ryan's Mammoth Collection, 1883; p. 24.
