- The book contains both the original German libretto and an English translation which isn't necessarily word for word with the German. There is no musical notation for the various songs.
- I would have preferred a direct translation from the German into English, rather than English words that are made to rhyme. I have been trying to learn more German but am not sure whether this will help. Whilst I have several piano pieces to play for the songs from The Magic Flute, I still do not possess any music for the Papageno/Papapgena duet, "Pa-pa-pa" towards the end of the opera, which is a disappointment.
