Misc. Notes Original images: ca.220dpi, color jpg files approx. 2200 by 2800 pixels. Editing: re-sampled to 600dpi, converted to black and white tif files, de-skewed, and set uniform margins. Blank pages inserted to facilitate duplex printing. Parts include separate cello and contrabass parts as well as a combined part. Oddly, separate parts appear for horns 1-4 showing "tacet" for the first movement, duplicating the second movement of the complete horn parts, and not listing the last two movements. No harp part. Are we sure it had one? PDF split of Cypressdome's "Complete Parts (no harp?)" file (#341917) by Sallen112.
