Notes

  1. Written communications from Mr Guido Spruyt to the author dated 2 August and 14 September 2021. During that concert the 7 Masonic songs were also created.
  2. This is preceded by a small introduction for the piano (ad libitum, senza misura).
  3. In De Roeck (p.542) by mistake verlangen instead of verleden.
