Includes works in German, French, Italian, Sicilian, and Venetian. Pieces not originally in English include translated English lyrics. Interesting how Neitzel refers to the pieces as "written during the early middle ages" (there are works by Gluck, Mozart, Beethoven, and Grétry; most people would classify these as Classical/Romantic).
