Misc. Notes This file is part of the Merton-Ourtext Project.
The pages have been arranged 2-up in imposition (booklet) order for duplex printing on A3 paper and require an A3 printer. Alternatively, this work can be mail-ordered from Ourtext's website: click here. Ourtext prints have undergone editing, and legibility and accuracy can be expected to be superior to Merton archive files displayed here.
According to Benton, in the Sieber edition these quintets are Op.5 (or, in a later print, without opus number), but here Op.6 has been added by hand.
