Misc. Notes Apparently, although the selections in these volumes contain works from the original Péchés de vieillesse, they do not contain them in the original order, so for example, Cafaro's "vol.1" contains works from other volumes. Hopefully, an original will eventually be uploaded that contains the original volumes with the original ordering.

Misc. Comments

  • Have seen argument whether this name refers to one of the suites or all 237 pieces. WorldCat (reference to a part of the manuscript, at Harvard University): "They are a portion of the large collection Péchés de vieillesse (Sins of old age), consisting of 237 small vocal and piano works in 13 albums, written in the last years of the composer's life." suggests the latter. Some question when they were first published in full, though. In part might be as early as (or earlier than) 1873, when Hutchings & Romer of London published some of Rossini's posthumous works, including some of the Péchés. (Or according to Wikipedia, by Heugel around 1878 for most of them?)
