Ave Maria op. 24 (1877, Hamelle) - Mezzo-Soprano, Harp and Organ
Ave Maria op. 59 (1884, Hamelle) - Voice, Harp and Organ  (source)

Problem: I have 2 different  recordings, but both CDs list them as Op. 59.
Until I see a printed score with the original copyright date, the opus number will need to remain open.
Listed as: "Ave Maria for organ op. 59" Listed as "Ave Maria op. 59 (1884)"
