Manson's label on the original envelope indicates that it includes "score and parts" but the full score is note included.
The Globe and Mail (March 13, 1933) reports a performance of Manson's wind quintet by the Toronto Woodwind Quintet (Walter Whitaker, flute; Oliver Woods, oboe; Herbert Pye, clarinet; Reginald Barrow, horn; and Frank E. Dennis, bassoon).
A second performance of the first movement "Allegro moderato" took place in a recital on January 28, 1938 by a later iteration of the Toronto Woodwind Quintet (Walter Whitaker, flute; D. Hutcheon, oboe; R. Causton, clarinet; C. Spearing, horn; and E. Huggins, bassoon) as announced and reviewed in The Varsity: "The allegro moderato from a woodwind Quintet by Robert Manson was a pleasant surprise. Well-written music, light and melodious, it reveals the existence of another Canadian composer of some ability, for Mr. Manson is one of the violists in the Toronto Symphony."
