NotesA note given in Crawford and Wierzbicki, Music in the United States of America, vol. 12, Middleton, WI: A-R Editions, American Musicological Society, 2004, p. 132 indicates: "Men with high, liquid notes and lady sopranos may sing an octave higher than written. The voice part of this "Aria," however, may be omitted with good effect. To make a deeper impression, a violin may play the piano's right-hand tune, or it may be omitted--for the same reason.
