Misc. Comments

  • No opus number in the published score. Opus number from "Salve Regina B-dur, Processio funebris c-moll, Psalmus: De profundis c-moll op. 43 na 3-głosy męskie, 4-głosowy chór i orkiestrę (1827)". This list of works is probably based on Elsner's own list. There are 3 compositions marked Op.43, all for the same occasion, apparently translation of the remains of brothers Ignacy (1750—1809) and Stanisław (1755—1821) Potocki to a new church built by Stanisław's wife Aleksandra (CBN: "Frontispis 'Psalmus De profundis' przedstawia kaplicę w Wilanowie postawioną dla pamięci Stanisława Potockiego przez Aleksandrę Potocką". With this make sense both the church engraving on the cover page of De profundis, and its Latin dedication ("Here is my rest. I will dwell here, because I chose it" etc.). However, the three compositions were published separately, probably for commercial reasons.
