  1. CeBeDeM - lijst werken: LIJST VAN DE WERKEN VAN VIC LEGLEY 22.6.1976, p.4. More details are not known.
  2. 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, trumpet, trombone and strings.
  3. Possibly not Legley's handwriting. According to De Roeck (p.359), the autograph would have been in the archive that Legley's son kept. However, in 2011 that archive was donated to the library of the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, where this work is not present. Perhaps this manuscript has remained in the Legley family after all.
