Misc. Comments

librettist identified as JLKF Seyffardt? A Gumbert duet also uses this same poem.

A library (Goethe-institut) which has this scanned in identifies the librettist as "Johan Ludwig Karel Frederik Seyffardt". Johan Seifert seems to match approximately but well enough- actually, Carl Friedrich Seyfert even better...
