I've played "Congratulations" endlessly on our Faventia, also I can
recall "Harry Lime", but neither do I remember playing "Strangers In
the Night" (a title I became familiar with on our 20-note Raffin) nor
the "Puppet On a String".

Somewhere also slumbers a complete list of barrels to be ordered from
Faventia; but not in my hands, nor did I find it at a glance on

There are two ways for me to answer your inquiry: (1) I will check
the Faventia barrels when I come across them in my next trip (given
I do not forget about this inquiry in the meantime), which will still
be a while to go, or (2) you make a recording for us to hear!

Various titles do re-appear on different numbered barrels, so I will
not put my hands in the fire to say our barrel is the same as yours.
