[+] Mitchell, Donald. "An Afterword on Britten's 'Pagodas': The Balinese Sources." Tempo, no. 152 (March 1985): 7-11.

The Prince of the Pagodas is based both on transcriptions that Britten made during his trip to Bali in 1956 and on "Kapi Radja," which he came to know from a recording. Unbeknownst to Britten, "Kapi Radja" was itself based on Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra.
