                This cylinder was issued anonymously (no artist credit).
Note: This last track has a drop in volume in one section, which is intentional as the singer (the unknown tenor) is singing “off-stage”, so to speak, while the baritone “lingered at the door”.  However, the volume was barely audible, so I increased it to a better hearing level. A particularly badly damaged recording, so poor sound quality overall. [RK]
