Misc. Comments

*Chanson indienne & Le doux appel were also the title of mélodies in the first set of Six mélodies, published in 1872 (or earlier) by Jacques Maho, to contain (a song called- possibly not the same as the present?) Nuit d'étoiles (but which did not have an opus number, at least not as announced in the December 1 '72 Revue et gazette.) The set of 6 otherwise was not much like the present Op.14 set (though it also had a song called A cette terre, suggesting possibly - though, without a copy to compare, not definitely - that those two numbers were at least early versions of Opp.14 nos. 1 and 3, and that those two of the 1872 set appear here. (The other two are called "Guitare" - perhaps reserved for Soirs d'été? - and Adieu, Op.14/2, which is not included here but was included in the final set.)
