Overture Marie du Bois, 1843.  First page of the autograph score.  The title is a tribute to Bennett's fiancée Mary Anne Wood, whom he married in 1844.  The work had several performances between 1844 and 1850 but remained unpublished until Bennett re-used as overture to his popular cantata The May-Queen in 1858.
