Title Parts

[] Ave Maria. Solo voor bariton met orgel
music W. V. Bartholomeus
performed by Rooms-Katholieke Dames en Heeren at the Pius-Concert, Concertzaal van het Odeon, Zwolle 21jun1876

[] (details unknown). Church compositions, choral compositions and songs

according an unreliable article in J. H. Letzer 1913 who knew only one Bartholomeus, not of any given names, writing about a non-existing W. N. Bartholomeus, under which he gives a biography of Willem Victor
The mentioned "church compositions, choral compositions and songs" are almost certainly a confusion with Jan Nicolaas
