15 The mistake is found in the first edition of Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians, published not long after Smith's death, and is perpetuated in many later writings on Smith, including the entry on her in my own The Pandora Guide to Women Composers (London: Pandora, 1994): 283–5Google Scholar . Grove's Dictionary also appears to be the first source to mistakenly give the key of Smith&s second symphony as G major, leading some writers to claim mistakenly that she wrote three symphonies.
