  • The numbering of songs in this opus is confused. In major publications, both online and in print, including WorldCat, only No.6 ("Stempellied") is referred to by its number within the set of Lieder. I have been able to find the correct numbering for Nos.3 and 5 ("Der heimlich Aufmarsch" and "Lied des Kampfbundes", respectively), by digging through grad school theses. I've also found that two other songs are also in the set--"Der rote Wedding" and "Komintern"--but I haven't been able to find a source that cites their numbering. All together, that makes 5 songs, 3 of whose numbering is known; at the moment, one song is still missing.
