Trivial or Important references and connectionsSome confusion whether this song cycle was authored by the more famous François Adrien Boieldieu (1775-1834) or his illegitimate son Adrien Louis Victor Boieldieu (1815-1883). The oeuvres listed in their Grove articles point to Louis, but attributes the work to the elder Boieldieu; the IMSLP scan simply lists the composer as Adrien Boieldieu (Search)
