“Partly on account of these alterations, and partly because I have been unable to ascertain the authorship of many compositions—which have come to me either in manuscript or through other collections—I have thought it right to publish the volume without appending the names of writers to their works. This, however, I confess to be a defect…”
— Benjamin Hall Kennedy (1863)

A GENEROUS FRIEND has sent something curious:

I found this old Kyriale accompaniment, but it no has the name of author or editor. In the last page (index) there is a clue, but I don’t know much about it; it seems that its from the Solesmes house. Please, feel free to publish this book in the Lalande library of rare books. If you can figure the name of author and editor, and the year of publication, please let me know.
