Misc. Notes Cello part mentioned on title page (not present in this scan) is a simple transcription of organ pedal part by Domenico Dragonetti, and is wholly optional - organ part remains unchanged from original. Does not really qualify as an "arrangement." Caption reads "arranged by Mendelssohn", but, again, organ part is actually unchanged - likely means only "edited by Mendelssohn." RCM Library item H290/3
