|| Ok, this is a right mess...This file needs to be replaced because|
The first violin part here belongs to a B-flat major/G minor quartet (presumably his 4th quartet), the other three parts to the same quartet as in the Opus 5 file (the quartet in F♯ minor.) I don't think Dancla was a Milhaud before the letter, intending for these string parts to be played together and at once, so someone needs to ask CWRU if there's a problem on their end that can be fixed....

There are 14 Dancla quartets, the last pub in 1900, Op 195.
- Actually, there's more like at least 23. Where do you get 14? (At least, see recording of no.23...) -ah, my mistake, that was a recording of no.23 by someone else with Dancla's no.8. Ow. Still, Dancla did write "Drei leichte Quartette für 2 Violinen, Viola und Violoncello, op. 208" (in C, G and D; this set recently republished, but mentioned in The Strad in 1908, so I'm guessing Op.208 are public domain (HMB mentions them in 1897)- hope someone has them and can scan them in :) )- so he sort-of wrote 17, more or less... but... not 23. I was mistaken. Sorry...
- Also a quatuor mélodique Op.188 (for the usual quartet combination?) and lots of works for 4 violins, etc. So 18 quartets usually-assembled?... - ES
