American Rhapsody is the name of the first version of Appalachia (from 1896), not the final, usually-performed one. RTii/2 is the catalog number belonging to Appalachia (from 1902), which is what's here. American Rhapsody - the first version of Appalachia - was first published after 1961, I think, and probably would not be available at Google! - Schissel
