Misc. Comments

  • No.2 also translated into German by G. Habnel
  • All 7 pieces are originally in G major. No.1 is Norina's final rondo from Don Pasquale (according to Allitt). "If this song was written in memory of Donizetti's wife, then it is interesting to note that there are in Italy MSS of the period written for B (Donizetti was a bass-baritone), for example: I-Rsc: MS in E minor; I-Nc: MS score; I-TN: MS score" (Allitt).
