Misc. Comments

Could this be his symphony whose full orchestral score was published by Heugel in 1885 (Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 2e série, 74e année, Nº 52, 26 Décembre 1885, p.767, r.4624.) (listed in BdlF only as "symphonie, partition d'orchestre, Heugel" etc.) ... ah, BNF suggests so.
