"Hello Albert, Earlier I missed this message. Thanks for all the information. Meurger published dozens of songs with guitar (and sometimes also piano/harp) accompaniment, but as far as I know there is just one piece for guitar solo, in a manuscript…"

"Jan, look what I could find just a few minutes ago: the Meuger family tree !  Only one discrepancy concerning the death date of the father Eugene in 1851 and not in 1894. It's likely that he died between 1862 and 1864 in agreement with the…"

"Dear Jan, the Alphonse Meurger you mentioned is probably homonym of Alphonse Meurger luthier and cellist (1841 - 1892) active with his father at Reims from about 1860. A Reims town history book mentions among the most important people of 1867 the…"

Hi Jan

I do know about the plate number and Youre totally right. I've just now looked at some of the other works by Molino, the ones where the print look like the op 6 and I see that the printer puts his platenumber below the last bar at all of his prints. Ive always thought that the number was the printing date. I'm more used to a platenumber at the bottom of the page. Thanks for letting me now

Hi Jan. Heres the link to the sweedish site Boije Collection. Here You can find the work by Molino. In the sheet it says below every sonata in the opus number, 1795. I gues its the year of the printing  http://www.muslib.se/ebibliotek/boije/indexeng.htm.

I see that Your a historian. I myself is very fond of history, especially the 19th century, thats why I play this historical instrument. If You havnt seen the video with my duo in this site You should check it out under videos. We're called Duo Historico - guess why ;-)
