Misc. Comments

The 1853 Helmore carol is in keyboard format, with one line of text, but it is only when one looks at the very first carol in the collection that on the "right hand" of the keyboard format it says "treble and alto" and on the "left hand" of the keyboard format it says "tenor and bass".
