Misc. Notes Front cover and Page 172. Presumably a popular excerpt, as the act is not specified. The original version had 3 acts, apparently? of which both acts 2 and 3 had sestetti - 'Qual Ti Veggo O Mia Lisetta' from act 3 and 'Quanti Baci Vorrei Dare' from act 2. (Will compare the vocal score to this excerpt in a little bit- ah. Opens as no.12 in the revised French version does, the Sextuor of the 2nd Act.)
