Publisher. Info. Regensburg: Eugen Feuchtinger, n.d. Plate E.F. 763.
Misc. Notes Plate # (763) is the same as the first publication (1895 or 1896) by Boessenecker, suggesting this may be a reprint rather than a wholly new object. (Otherwise one could conclude from the F&G plate table that this publication was issued in the early 1900s or so, but that is harder to do under the circumstances.)

Navigation etc.

Some passages are marked "soli" by the composer, so should for contrast actually be performed by more than just the 2 tenors and 2 basses that would otherwise appear to be minimally effective; optimally by men's chorus, one supposes. (OTOH, those passages all involve at most 3 voices, with one voice given a rest. Still, arguably, real contrast in such situations would be best achieved with a larger ensemble and performing one to a part in such passages? Up to the musicians, one supposes.)
