AB - In the previous paper [Sch2] it has been shown that ray class fields over quadratic imaginary number fields can be generated by simple products of singular values of the Klein form defined below. In the present article the second named author has constructed more general products that are contained in ray class fields thereby correcting Theorem 2 of [Sch2]. An algorithm for the computation of the algebraic equations of the numbers in Theorem 1 of this paper has been implemented in a KASH program by the first named author, who also calculated the list of examples at the end of this article. As in the special cases treated in [Sch2] these examples exhibit again that the coefficients of the algebraic equations are rather small. Moreover, apart from trivial exceptions, all numbers computed so far turn out to be generators of the corresponding ray class field, thereby suggesting the conjecture formulated more precisely after Theorem 1.
