Misc. Comments

Note: "Un mio ricordo" means In memory of, and strongly strongly suggests publication, even composition, after 1870 (edit: the year of Mercadante's death), not before. So 1876 composition date seems more reasonable than the conjectured 1866 publication date.

The Ricordi edition may be a joint publication with Fratelli Clausetti in Napoli (WorldCat), although WorldCat entries also exist for Ricordi alone and Clausetti alone. Modern editions include those of Low Note and Music Door.
