The following table, drawn
from Rust and Brooks, p. 175, and reconciled with Arnold (see below), shows
that the New York recording sessions included a good deal of repertoire beyond
that released on the four known Columbia publications (A6087, A6090, A6101,
A6122). Date, from Columbia card files, "is generally the date the master was
shipped to the factory for processing" (Rust and Brooks, p. viii).

The orchestra is variously identified, usually as "French Symphony Orchestra, " also "Paris Conservatory Symphony Orchestra."
"Takes known to have been issued are underlined" (Rust and Brooks, p. ix).
It seems reasonable to conclude that 49531, the Verdi duet "with orchestra" was recorded during the same sessions with the Société des Concerts.
S5127 is a recoupling in the Spanish export series, pre 1924. 6907-M is the same coupling in the "Celebrity" series (South America), c. 1924 or later.
