Misc. Comments

Dedication - in memoriam Mozart presumably? (In the key, and recalling somewhat the instrumentation, of some of Mozart's Masonic works?...)

Note: see Munchener Bote für Stadt und Land. Performed in Autumn (1856? 1857?) in Salzburg by a quite large ensemble? See also Neue Münchener Zeitung, 13 August 1856 issue (No.193), where the work (or the text?) is referred to as a Festcantate and its scheduled performance on 6 September 1856 is announced.
