Fascinating! These appear to be the titles of opera songs.

"Ask me not why" is from La Fille du Régiment
"I'll pray for thee" is from Lucia di Lammermoor
"O Summer Night" is from Don Pasquale
"We live mid the bounding" is from La Fille du Régiment
[not sure about this one] high heaven ....
"Where are now the hopes I cherished" is from Norma
"Sounds so joyful" is from La Sonnambula
"Fair land of Poland" is from The Bohemian Girl
"By the sad sea waves" is from The Brides of Venice
