Misc. Comments

Text found in "Catholic World", 1874, volume 19, issue 111, page 332, preceded there as in the score of this work by a quote attributed to Friedrich Schiller:
"Mortal cannot make conditions with the Creator".

(Hrm. This does not seem like Schiller - is it?)

(Anyway, can't find the text of the Answered Prayer in English in an earlier source, offhand, but I should try to translate it ... - Schissel.)
