Some of the omitted music and lyrics may be added later, subject to determining the copyright situation.

Song no. 18 was composed by Manuel Klein (1876-1919).
Song no. 3 was composed by Harold Samuel (1879-1937) and is therefore inhibited by copyright until 2008.
Song no. 16 was composed by John W. Bratton (1867-1947) and will likewise remain under copyright until 2018.
Song no. 19 was composed by Sydney L. Perrin, who in collaboration with Bob Slater also composed item 21.
Song no. 23 was written and composed by Bernard Rolt, and Garnet Wolseley Cox contributed an extra un-numbered duet.
I am still seeking information on the copyright situation for these four composers.
