Elucidate, no, speculate, yes. As far as I know, the best published
listing of the works of Villa Lobos was done by David Appleby. David
taught, as I recall, at Texas Christian University. He donated his
scores to our University. His bio bibliography was published by Greewood
Press. I believe some places use his numbering but use the prefix A.1
A.2 etc. The Greenwood usually use W.1, W.2 etc. for all of their
publications. David also did a biography of VLobos which was published
by Scarecrow press.
If I find out more, I will pass it along.
