Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project.
The composer in this case specifies that the version for high voice is the original version, making the low voice version perhaps an arrangement/transcription rather than an alternate. Debatable.
This item, public domain in its country of origin, is possibly likewise public domain in the EU due to the EU's implementation of Rule of the Shorter Term for non-EU works. This EU ruling might be superseded by bilateral treaties still in force between some EU countries and countries outside the EU (notably the USA).
