Misc. Comments

A Tantum ergo for tenor and 4-part chorus with organ was published- supposedly a premiere publication- by Richault ("Musique religieuse de L. Cherubini,.... Oeuvres posthumes tirées du répertoire de l'ancienne chapelle royale, publiées pour la première fois par le fils de l'auteur, avec le concours de M. Edouard Rodrigues et de M. Vaucorbeil. 1er volume") in 1867. Not sure if it's this one (though the chorus was 4 part rather than 5) in reduction, or his Tantum ergo in A-flat. Since the B-flat had already been published in 1820, one assumes that the Richault was not the same as the B-flat.
