Misc. Comments

  • French Meissonnier edition: [1]. Plates J.M.548-557.
  • In his author index Allitt lists Paul Lacroix as the librettist for No.3; however, this is a mistake: he is the author of the text for La prière, A 424. Barblan/Zanolini list Deschamps for No.7 (translator?); Allitt names him as translator of Nos.3-4.
  • In Lucca's 1842 the pieces were printed in a different order (bnf): 4-3-2-1-6-8-7-5-9-10.
  • No.1: There is an autograph in Paris with slightely diferent text: Oui, ton Dieu c’est le mien.
  • No.4 available here: [2].
