Misc. Comments

This has is from a genre (?) I have seen elsewhere a few times especially in Library of Congress scans of American-published music of the 19th century - a several-verse strophic song for one voice and piano followed by at least one verse of the poem for a several-voice chorus (hence the subtitle.)
