Misc. Comments

Opens and closes in B major (give or take and more or less).

Renewal of 1965 is on title page of my copy of the score (I assume they mean 1964 or that it arrived in the mail in 1965, or somesuch, but in anycase, they do note that on post-1963 prints, it seems and reasonably.) - Schissel
