Mid-1900s font used for titling on music scores

I've tried a bunch of different font identification sites without any luck. The best I can come up with are Gargoyle RR Light and Italia Book, but neither are great matches. This typeface may not exist in digital form yet. Here is the sample I used:

Here's a more extensive set of glyphs of the same family so you can get a better sense of the style:

I think they were more like early 1900's, possibly even late 1800's. Were they published in the US or Europe? Every little bit of info can be helpful.

Thanks, George. As far as I know, they would be most likely found in US publications, 1940's to 1960's.
