Our thanks go to Marianna Shreve Simpson, guest curator, and Daniel Kearns, broadcast engineer at Princeton University (and narrator of the introduction). We thank Princeton University Library and Don Skemer, curator of manuscripts, for sharing this wonderful manuscript: the Peck Shahnama (Princeton Islamic Manuscripts, Third series, no. 310. Manuscript Division, Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, Princeton University Library. Bequest (1983) of Clara S. Peck, in honor of her brother, Fremont C. Peck, Princeton Class of 1920).
We are grateful to Amir Vahab, Sufi musician, for use of his "Universe," "Transe Rhythms," and "Tanbur and Daf Improvisation." We also thank other Art Museum staff members, including Cathryn Goodwin, Janet Rauscher, Janet Strohl-Morgan, Sean Walsh, and Sarah Brown.
