Misc. Comments

(From a website: "Aussi, jugez de sa stupéfaction en s'apercevant que la partition d'orchestre de Yedda ne comprend pas moins de mille pages.") Ah. Does not seem to have been published completely in full score, though this excerpt was in ca.1883 by E. Girard:

Le repos du Mikado - Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 2e série, 72e année, Nº 5, 3 Février 1883, p.72, r.431.
