Misc. Notes #78262: Cleaned and centered score.
For no.3 Worldcat has "Tanssi improvisationi". The title looks like it's been overlaid in a different font by someone along the way (and a Google search for Kuula and the phrase here (in quotes so as to force spelling) turns up only this IMSLP page, nothing else at all, which is always interesting. Unknown scanner source?... )

Misc. Notes Gustaf Durchman in memoriam. He was vicar of the church in Isokyrö and patronizing Kuula during a crucial period of time (in 1903-1904) had a profound influence on the young composer. Durchman's son, Arno, was a friend of Kuula. There are some differences between the organ and piano version.
