|External Links|| (does not give opus number ; this has been suggested by checking HMB. It is possible that Hölzel composed two works with this opus number, though the nearness of date of publication suggests that this is the right one, as US publication of an "edition"/translation did often follow close on the appearance of a publication (not necessarily first) of a work in Europe.)|
(ms. copy, made in 1905, of a 1882-published 2-zither arrangement by Lerche, Franziskanerkloster, Provinzarchiv, Schwaz. Describes song as Romanze)
. The Alois Rudolf Lerche Streich-Zither (or 2) arrangement was published in 1882: so the work had acquired the subtitle Romanze during the composer’s lifetime. - Schissel
