Note 1: Works listed by de Frias (1913), but not included into Macedo Cazarré's list (partly because it comprises only piano compositions), are marked [de Frias].
Note 2: It seems that Napoleão used Op. numbers constantly, one Op. per one composition. Though some works were not published. Opp.32 and 36 seem to be messed in de Frias's list; Op.38, if really published for the first time after 1915, may be a substitution for the unpublished lost songs listed by de Frias.
