  • CPDL #12415:        (Sibelius 2)
Editor: Jonathan Goodliffe (submitted 2006-08-27).   Score information: A4, 5 pages, 68 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Revised version 2006-12-21. Value of notes halved to reproduce the beaming in the original score. Guess work involved in setting words to choral parts (original manuscript of "Missa Scala Aretina" also seems to be incomplete in this respect). The only slurs between notes in this edition are between minims (half notes) and correspond to ligatures used in the original score. The composer's apparent mistake in switching second and third soprano parts at bar 23 is corrected.

Choral parts follow (with minor variations) the "Christe eleison" is the composer's best known work, the "Missa Scala Aretina" (which is fully orchestrated). The score uses a variety of forms of non standard notation (including void notes). In bar 23 the composer switches the second and third soprano parts (probably by mistake). Very few indications given in the score as to how the words should fit to the choral parts.
