Sextett, Op.8 (Bennett, William Sterndale)
Scores and Parts
Leipzig: Fr. Kistner, . Plate 1466.
This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Judging from its place in the HMB "table" (since Op.10 was published in 1830 and this is Op.8, etc. etc. ...) this may not be the first appearance of the work in print. However, a 1820-1840 search of Google Books seems to turn up nothing here. Interestingly for a publication from 1846, the title page says in small print, "Augener & Co. in London". I did think Augener didn't exist in 1846. Maybe this is a slightly changed later reprint with the same plates.
London: Augener, Ed.9621, n.d.(ca.1887?). Plate 4515.
Augener edition mentioned in a 1887 Monthly Musical Record ad.
London: Augener, No.9621, n.d. Plate 4515.

The pages have been arranged 2-up in imposition (booklet) order for duplex printing on A3 paper and require an A3 printer. Alternatively, this work can be mail-ordered from Ourtext's website: . Ourtext prints have undergone editing, and legibility and accuracy can be expected to be superior to Merton archive files displayed here. Augener edition mentioned in a 1887 Monthly Musical Record ad.

Grove doesn't list the alternate 2nd cello in lieu of double bass. Accordingly, it has been tagged for the original version only.
- But it's in the file with the other parts, with the same plate number...retagged. KGill talk email 19:48, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
- "Original version only" - The Augener edition postdates 1853 of necessity and hence is not the original edition, in any case. The 1846 Kistneredition does say "Sextett für Pianoforte, Zwei Violinen, viola, violoncell u[nd] contrabass (oder zwei violoncelles)" right on the (piano part) title page, though! - Schissel
