Schuberth also released (as seems to have been common practice) various selections and arrangements in 1881, which advertised the above potpourri as well as:

Complete Vocal Score. With English and German words.
Complete Piano Score.

-Vocal Selections.-

The Rat Charmer’s Song.
Song of Love.
Drinking Song.
Rhine Wine Song.
Woman’s Love.
Song of Lisa.

-Instrumental Selections.-

Potpourri for Pianoforte (Kölling).
Song of Lisa & Rat-Charmer’s Song (easy and brilliant transcription). (This last only on later covers)

At least one 4 minute highlight recorded by Wunderlich in 1962, but not yet, it would seem, the whole opera... (likewise "Wandern, ach wandern : Lied des Rattenfängers" was recorded by Richard Tauber and, in 78 days, by Carl Schlegel. It's probably the theme varied by Wilhelm Popp in his Op.330 flute piece, for instance.
