British Library catalogue claims that the Addison, Hollier & Lucas publication is "Partly drawn from 4 Lieder, Op. 5 and 6 Gesange, Op. 9." This is questionable since Op.5 appears to be part songs (for multiple voices). No other known edition of the Op.9 collection, so it is unclear where BL's information comes from.
