Navigation etc.

The composer then wrote, according to JM Neves' worklist, a Marche funèbre for orchestra to "conclude" this work (SN93, "Marche funèbre pour terminer l’Elégie sur la mort de Dussek", C minor, 1812 - this is probably, come to think, an orchestration of the 2nd movement of the above.) "Ref. édition: gravé" (unpublished? - similarly for the above even though SN90 is published?))
