Misc. Comments

Note: "Un mio ricordo" means In memory of, and strongly strongly suggests publication, even composition, after 1870 (the year of Mercadante's death), not before. However, 1858 is apparently the composition date, so the "Un mio ricordo" may have been added afterwards during publication.
