Misc. Comments

Does the chorus of Nibelungs sing? I thought they did, but I don't see it in the full score of scene III here (maybe Act IV??). The Wikipedia Ring article claims that Wagner only uses the chorus in Gotterdammerung, making the first three of these operas vv orch, not vv ch orch, tag-wise... - ES
