The 'Salão Nobre' referred to here is a shortened reference to the Salão Nobre da Associação dos Empregados do Comercio of Rio de Janeiro, where a large number of Villa-Lobos works were premiered.
All opus numbers were those given on the premiere programme, or in some cases by the publisher.
'CNCO' stands for the Brazilian government publisher Conservatorio Nacional de Canto Orfeônico (Ministério da Educação e Cultura). In 1958, they published a volume of band music Partituras para banda (Vol.1), which mostly includes Villa-Lobos's arrangements of his own choral music.
'Vitale' refers to Irmãos Vitale. Italics in publishers and publication dates signify reprints.

The form of this work as it is known today was developed around 1948 when Villa-Lobos decided to return to a project that he had worked on from 1923-28 to compile several pieces he had written earlier into a suite. The original version from the 1920s consisted of only four movements, while the 1948 one that was eventually published in 1955 contains the familiar five. The bulk of the differences between these versions can be summarized as follows:
(a) Despite the composer's assertion of differing composition dates for the first two pieces, only the Mazurka-choro actually exists in what appears to be a preliminary version: a differing treatment of very similar material from 1911 called Simples (see W040). It is doubtful whether he actually wrote the final version of the Mazurka-choro in 1908; it seems more likely that he wrote it in the course of his preparations for the 1955 publication of the work.
(b) Gavota-choro was a completely new addition to the 1948/55 version.
(c) The Valsa-choro which made it to the 1955 publication is not the same piece as the Valse-choro of the 1920s version. The latter piece was first published in 2006, the same year it received its premiere performance. (See entry below.)

1923-28 version:
1. Mazourka-choro (1906; à Maria Tereza Teran)
2. Schottische-choro (1907; à Francis Boyle)
3. Chorinho (Petit Choro; à Madeleine Reclus)
4. Valse-choro (à Eduardo Burnay)
1948 version:
1. Mazurka-choro (1908; à Maria Tereza Teran)
2. Schottisch-choro (1908)
3. Valsa-choro (1912)
4. Gavota-choro (1912)
5. Chorinho (1923; à Madeleine Reclus)
