Notes:
Many of the parts in Bb Major in Tizol's (?) hand appear to relate to the parts in Db Major in Tizol's (?) hand. The apparent addition of a six-bar introduction resulted in the key discrepancy. Handwriting and other details have been reported based on the notes of David Berger, Andrew Homzy, Dr. Theodore Hudson, Walter van de Leur, and Mark Tucker.
