Misc. Notes scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning. I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

Both pieces were originally published by A. R. Friese in a supplement to the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik entitled Sammlung von Musik-Stücken alter und neuer Zeit; Das Waldschloss in Heft I, Nr. 1 in January, and Pagenlied in Heft II, Nr. 4 in May. The two songs did not appear together until the 1850s, when they are recorded twice in Hofmeisters Monatsberichten, once in January 1851 and once in February 1855.
