Misc. Comments

  • B.50 of 1875/76, Op.20, is the "first series". The composer released 4 series of Moravian Duets, it seems, and a further work by that title for a cappella chorus.

However, B.60 has only 5 pieces. The other works listed here are parts of other sets of Moravian duets by the composer (see List of works by Antonín Dvořák.)

However, Op.32 has the 14 pieces listed here. So, Instead of splitting things (which nobody has time to do), why not just leave this as a collection page (with double-billing) and set up separate pages for B.60, B.62, et al as they arrive? Carolus
