1. Franz Schubert is listed as the composer in this collection, but this appears to be an erroneous attribution. Based on my research the piece seems to come from a collection called Evening Recreations: A Collection of Popular Quadrilles and the Schubert referenced is not Franz. I have been unable to find a copy of this book to verify this information. It's possible that the Schubert in question is actually Camille Schubert. She wrote a similar work, which can be viewed here.
