Notes
Brooks/Rust also notes that it is probable, but not confirmed, that this selection is unaccompanied.
Brooks/Rust associate three different ensembles with the recording sessions that include this master number. (The Columbia and Climax Quartettes are the same group, and the Trinity Glee Singers is a pseudonym for the Columbia Quartette.) However it is not known whether one of them, or a different ensemble, is responsible for the recordings that are unattributed here.
