  • CPDL #04065:   
Editor: Thomas Gebhardt (submitted 2002-10-08).   Score information: A4, 2 pages, 100 kB   Copyright: Personal
Edition notes: 36 part canon, 9 choirs, only one choir shown. Notes from Thomas Gebhardt on performance: ... each part is divided into 9 singers (or parts), they start singing one bar after another, i.e. bar1=soprano1, bar2=soprano2 ... bar9=soprano9+alto(high tenor)1, bar10=alto2 ... bar17=alto9+tenor1 (on 3rd beat), bar18=tenor2 ... bar25=tenor9+bass1, bar26=bass2 ... soprano holds c" until end of piece. But various alternatives are possible. We have done the piece starting in bar 25 with tenor/bass duet (all singers but no canon) singing until the end, after that started the canon of soprano and alto only (18 singers). In a second version we did the complete canon (36 singers) as described above. Latin remarks in the score are quoted from original print.
