Error list

The two editions of “Te Deum” KV141 by W.A. Mozart available at CPDL ([VOL] by Marco Voli and [SYL] by Song Yung Lee) are essentially identical. However, the following differences, that are not necessarily errors, have been noted with respect to the edition of the Neue Mozart-Ausgabe [NMA] available on-line at the Mozarteum web site. The choir training/rehearsal aids available on the Choralia web site have been corrected in compliance with this list of observed differences.

Bass and tenor, measure 200 – 201: in [VOL] and in [SYL] the syllable “num” is on the first note of measure 201, and the word “non” is repeated twice on the second and on the third note of the same measure; in [NMA] the syllable “num” is on the second note of measure 201, and the word “non” is only on the third note of the same measure; as a consequence, in [NMA] the first note of measure 201 is tied to the (only) note of measure 200 .
Bass, measure 225: the first note of the measure is E in [VOL] and in [SYL], while it is C in [NMA].
