The copyright date on a duett arrangement of this work by Victor Hammerel is 1903, publ. J. Fischer & Bro. The original publication date would be earlier still.  Rebecca Littman, UW-Milwaukee Music Library, has confirmed that the 1926 setting  in their catalog is a reprint of this same Op. 346.

Albert RoSewig was a German immigrant to Philadelphia in the mid 1800s. For over 30 years he was the director of music at St. Charles Borromeo Church. He owned a publishing company that produced an important collection of sacred music including his own. His style is comparable to the genius of Gounod, Verdi, and Mozart and he made known in America some of the richest music ever written for the Church.

This piece is rarely performed and I personally think of it as a lost treasure. .../...
