Misc. Notes:

Duplex scan has some pages with whiteout present, making some lines and notes of the instruments hard to read. Duplex scan was not my scan, I found it on a different website. The improved scan is another copy I found from a library that I scanned myself. -Sallen112

Misc. Comments

It's possible that all these cantata vocal scores will have to be taken down entirely: I think it may turn out on investigation that "Eric Smith" was Erik Georg Sebastian Smith/Schmidt-Isserstedt (1931-2004), and if so, he died much too recently for these to be PD-CA translations, I'd think! - Schissel

If the translations are removed from the scans, it should be fine. I don't imagine they're done much in translation anyway. But it is annoying. Carolus
