  • CPDL #22792:        (Sibelius 3)
Editor: Edmund Gooch (submitted 2010-12-07).   Score information: A4, 3 pages, 41 kB   Copyright: Public Domain
Edition notes: No closing repeat mark is given in the source at bar 9, but there is a $ sign at the beginning of the piece and a double bar line after bar 9: a closing repeat mark has been added editorially as the next indication of repetition is a $ sign at bar 30, which is matched by a first and second time bar at bar 42.
While empty staves have been omitted from the present edition in bars 10-25 and 44-48, the source has all four staves given throughout these sections, making the voice indications which have been added to the present edition unnecessary in that layout.
The counter part is notated in the alto clef in the source. MusicXML source file is in compressed .mxl format.
