Volumes I/15-17 of the New Liszt Edition contain versions for piano of works by Liszt written for other instruments or for voices. Of the pieces in volume 17, many works appeared here in print for the first time: the Festpolonaise, the O Roma nobilis (whose melody can be traced back to a seventh- or eighth-century pilgrims' hymn), the San Francesco, the Cantico di San Francesco (in which the melody In dulci jubilo can be found) and In domum Domini ibimus. One interesting feature of A magyarok istene [God of the Hungarians] is that as well as the version for two hands, Liszt also made a piano transcription for left hand alone.

As far as possible, the pieces are given in chronological order. As customary, there are two versions of the publication: a blue clothbound edition and a grey softcover edition. The informative preface giving the most important information on the contents and technical details is identical in both versions, but only the former version includes an English description of the sources and a critical commentary. Both versions include facsimiles of pages from Liszt's original autograph manuscript.

Works marked by an asterisk in the Contents are published here for the first time in print.
