[Brandenburg Concerti, BWV 1046-1051] Brandenburgische Konzerte. Faksimile des Autographen. Faksimileausgabe nach dem Autograph Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – Preußische Kulturbesitz, Musikabteilung, Am.B.78.
Leipzig, 4/ 1996. Oblong, 33 x 26 cm, 170 pp. Halftone monochrome of the dedication autograph score—dated 24 March 1721—for Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg. Bach's elegantly penned title "Concerts avec plusieurs instruments" (concertos with several instruments) is a somewhat modest description of the concertos to follow, in that many different combinations of instruments and sonorities are exploited, perhaps deliberately to get the Margrave's attention and approval, not unlike the way Mozart used his Gran Partita to introduce himself to the Viennese public. Sadly the autograph score was left unused in the Margrave's library until his death in 1734, the reason being (it is believed) that he lacked the musicians to perform the concertos. One of the great gems of Western music, this facsimile is a perfect gift for any wind or string player, harpsichordist, conductor or music lover. Handsome binding in brown linen with lettering in gold. $285 (more info... ) [item no.7619]

BARTÓK, Béla, 1881-1945

[Concerto, viola, orch, draft] Concerto for Viola and Orchestra. Facsimile of the Autograph Draft, with an Introduction by Laszlo Somfai. Preface by Peter Bartók. New Fair Copy of the Autograph by Nelson Dellamaggiore.
Homosassa, 1995. 28 x 40 cm, 16 facs, 80 pp. Full-color facsimile of the composing (short) score written in 1944 in New York (and Saranac Lake), which, along with the Third Piano Concerto, is the composer’s last work.

That task was later completed by Tibor Serly. With this facsimile we can finally answer the question, how much is Bartók, and what details come from Serly.

Dance Suite for Orchestra. Reprint of the Original Manuscript (Budapest Historical Museum). Edited by Ferenc Bónis.
Budapest, 1998. 26 x 34 cm, 2 vols, 66 facs, 48 pp. 3-color halftone of the autograph full score fair copy, completed Aug. 19, 1923. The work was written on commission to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the union of Buda and Pest. The composer does not make use of real peasant melodies but rather invents folk songs as a unifying device; the Dance Suite represents the first time in which this principle was used for an entire symphonic cycle. The commentary volume explores the cultural millieu of Budapest in the twenties, the work’s genesis, compositional sources, and reproduces 7 B/W plates of other autograph material. Bound in black cloth with gold lettering (commentary booklet in wrappers). Colorful portfolio with pasted title. $118 (more info... ) [item no.7629]

[Music for Strings, Percussion & Celeste] Musik für Saiteninstrumente, Schlagzeug und Celesta. Faksimile des Partiturautographs und der Skizzen. Herausgegeben von Felix Meyer.
Eine Publikation der Paul Sacher Stiftung. Basel, 2000. 30 x 40 cm, 176 pp (103 facs). Beautiful color halftone of the autograph score of one of the towering masterpieces of 20th-century music. Originally commissioned by Paul Sacher in 1936 for the tenth-anniversary of the Basel Chamber Orchestra, the work was supposed to be "for strings alone" and "not too difficult technically". Bartók, vacationing at the time in Braunwald, Switzerland eagerly accepted the task. The manuscript is an unusual draft and faircopy in a single document. This stunning bibliophile edition consists of an introduction by Felix Meyer accompanied by numerous reproductions of period documents and photographs, and a full facsimile of the score—including 31 "discarded" pages provided as a supplement. It was published as a tribute to the memory of Paul Sacher and a celebration of sorts for the transfer (on loan) of the original manuscript from Peter Bartók to the Sacher Foundation Library. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Handsome binding in red linen, with matching slipcase. $254 (more info... ) [item no.7854]


BEETHOVEN, Ludwig van, 1770-1827

Documenta Musicologica, II/51. Kassel, 2016. Oblong, 45 x 40 cm, 351, 27 pp. Deluxe 4-color facsimile of the autograph working score. William Drakbin describes the genesis of the mass as “the longest, most arduous struggle in Beethoven’s career as an artist”, with equally complex history of its sale to B. Schott after years of calculating with other publishers. 4 of the 5 movements of the Missa Solemnis survive today, the Kyrie, 50 pp in upright format, and the last three movements, Credo, Agnus and Sanctus, 286 pp in oblong format.

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 7. Laaber, 2005. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xxiv, 240 pp. Facsimile, in full-color, of the autograph manuscript preseved in the State Library, Berlin. Beethoven called his last piano concerto, written in the same key as the Eroica, E-flat major, “a grand concerto”. It was influenced by the political and social events of the time, originally intended as the people’s call to arms against Napoleon. Beethoven’s 1809 autograph score documents not only the compositional process of the work written over a period of more than a year, but also provides a fascinating biographical testimony, as it was in the same year, sadly, that the composer had to discontinue his own public performances as a pianist due to his ever worsening deafness. This tragic break in his performing career caused him to develop a much more detailed autograph of the Fifth Piano Concerto than those of his earlier works. Clothbound. $484 (more info... ) [item no.8446]


[Concerti, piano, orch, cadenzas, selections] Sämtliche Kadenzen / The Complete Cadenzas. Herausgegeben von Willy Hess. Faksimile Ausgabe anläßlich des 100 Geburtstages 22. Februar 1979 von Dr. Kurt Eulenberg.
Zürich, 1979. 34 x 26 cm, xi, 131 pp (with 98 facs). Beautiful 4-color facsimile of 17 autograph cadenzas now preserved in four different libraries: Beethoven-Haus-Bonn (14), Bibliothèque National - Paris (1), Staatsbibliothek - Berlin (1) & the British Library - London (1). The cadenzas—generally fair copies—belong to the Piano Concertos nos. 1, 2, 3 & 4, the piano version of the Violin Concerto Op.61, and Mozart’s Concerto K.466 in d minor. Willy Hess’ commentary provides careful descriptions of each autograph, as well as information on printed editions. While Mozart left behind a plethora of cadenzas, not only for his own concertos but for those of others, Beethoven once avowed that he could not write anything which was “non-obligato” (closing the door on anyone who wished to freely improvise in his concertos). Some believe that Beethoven composed them in 1809 for his talented pupil, Archduke Rudolph. This facsimile edition provides a wonderful opportunity to study Beethoven’s approach to the cadenzas and, at the same time, compare them to the ones written by Moscheles, Reinecke, Brahms and Busoni which have also become a part of the repertory. Fine bibliophile edition issued on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Dr. Eulenberg. Handsomely bound with brown linen spine and Ingres marbled paper boards; matching slipcase. $289 (more info... ) [item no.170]


[Concerto, violin, orch, op.61, D major] Konzert für Violine und Orchester, D-dur, Opus 61. [Österreichische Nationalbibl., Vienna, Mus. Hs. 17.538].
Musica Manuscripta, I. Graz, 1979. Oblong, 34 x 24 cm, 55, 260 pp. The Violin Concerto in D Major of Ludwig van Beethoven—probably the most famous of all violin concerti—has a complicated history. Written on rather short notice for his friend Fanz Clement in late 1806, and completed only hours before the concert was to begin (sight read by Clement according to some sources), the work was nearly forgotten until its rediscovery in 1844 by the vituoso Josef Joachim, who performed it with various orchestras conducted by Felix Mendelssohn. No violin cadenzas were written by Beethoven though cadenzas were written by him for the piano version published shortly after the 1808 edition for violin. It is one of the most fascinating Beethoven autographs, since it not only shows the usual corrections during and after the writing process, but also the first stages of the revisions of the violin solo part and the sketches of its transformation into a piano part. The faint colors of the main text in the autograph score—mat brown on ivory paper—and the latter autograph additions with strong ink, red crayon and pencil, reproduced here with utmost fidelity, allow scholar and musician alike to take a fascinating journey into the composer's creative process. Deluxe 5-color halftone of the autograph score, edited and introduced by Franz Grasberger. Limited edition of 1000 copies in half-leather binding that duplicates a former binding of the original. Handsome slipcase in full linen with gold lettering. (special OMI price, regularly $1,075). $599 (more info... ) [item no.151]

[Symphony, no.9, op.125, D minor] Sinfonie No.9 op.125. Autograph. Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin—Preussischer Kulturbesitz, Beethoven-Haus Bonn, Bibliothèque National de France. Commentary by / Kommentar von: Lewis Lockwood, Jonathan Del Mar, Martina Rebmann.
Documenta Musicologica, II/42. Kassel, 2010. 37 x 40 cm, viii, 436, 42 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph fair copy in the original format. With his Ninth Symphony Beethoven ventured into new musical dimensions. In the final movement soloists and chorus join forces with the orchestra and Schiller’s “Ode to Joy” becomes a global aspiration, a declaration: “Alle Menschen werden Brüder” (all mankind becomes brothers). In his commentary the Beethoven scholar Lewis Lockwood describes the plea which Beethoven wanted to deliver at that time with this work and how views of this have changed over the centuries. Jonathan Del Mar, editor of Beethoven’s works, comments on noteworthy passages in the autograph manuscript and allows the reader to share in the composer’s working process. Already the large-format paper which Beethoven used for some passages makes the large forces clear. Cuts, sometimes reversed later, show how he wrestled with the final version of the musical text and refined it right down to the last detail. The history of the autograph manuscript reflects an episode in German history: after storage in various places because of the war, the major parts were returned to Berlin but were initially divided by the Berlin Wall and only reunited in 1990. Martina Rebmann, director of the Music Department at the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin traces this story. For the first time the facsimile present all the parts of the manuscript including pages preserved in Bonn and Paris as well as the trombone and contrabassoon parts. Hardbound, with decorative paper and linen spine. Commentary in Eng-Ger-Jap. Special OMI price. $880 (more info... ) [item no.9177]


[sketchbook: “Artaria 195”] Artaria 195. Beethoven’s Sketchbook for the Missa Solemnis and the Piano Sonata in E Major, Opus 109. Transcribed, Edited, and with a Commentary by William Kinderman.
Beethoven Sketchbook Series, [1]. Champaign, 2003. Oblong, 4˚, 3 vols, 384 pp. Full-color reproduction. Artaria 195 includes sketches for two of Beethoven's masterpieces: the Piano Sonata in E Major, Op. 109, and the Missa solemnis, Op. 123. It also preserves Beethoven's work on the Bagatelles Op. 119, Nos. 7-11, and other unknown brief piano pieces. Beethoven's sketchbooks were his workshop. Capturing the methods he used to craft his ideas into art, they reveal his complex creativity and offer rich material for examining his revision process. Variations in his entries reflect the range of his musical moods and offer clues about the circumstances of composition. His notes and shorthand can illuminate the ways he expanded and refined ideas, clarify biographical or musical mysteries, or call attention to deliberate links between compositions.

Beethoven Werke, XIII/1. Munich, 2014. Oblong, 31 x 27 cm, 3 vols, xv, 307; 93; 201 pp. When Beethoven moved to Vienna in 1792, almost immediately, and likely pre-arranged, he started composition studies with Haydn, who had been freed from his post with the Esterhazys and was now living in Vienna. The studies—exercises in free counterpoint but also concerned with the conception of a piece, movement structure, proportions of the various parts and the art of “sketching”—lasted until 1794 when his teacher recommended additional studies with Albrechtsberger; with him Beethoven acquired a wide range of technical and compositional tools building on the earlier study. In 1801 Beethoven then turned to Salieri to learn the technique of setting primarily Italian texts to music, an area not covered in the preceding studies. The present volume reproduces for the first time the surviving manuscripts that record those studies. These are remarkable witnesses showing Beethoven under the watchful eyes of his teachers with illuminating comments, corrections or alternative passages.

Beethoven Sketchbook Series, [3]. Champaign, 2016. Oblong, 38 x 28 cm, 144 pp. Color facsimile of a pocket sketchbook acquired by the Berlin Royal Library in 1879 as part of the holdings of Friedrich August Grasnick, a gentleman scholar & music collector. Long neglected in scholarship, the so-called Grasnick 5 documents reveal Beethoven working out concepts and ideas, offering fascinating insights into his creative method. This critical edition, the third in the Beethoven Sketchbook Series, offers a facsimile and transcription, spread out side by side, of the contents of the stitched pocket sketchbook started by the 50-year-old master during the summer of 1820. At the time, Beethoven labored over the Missa solemnis, Opus 123. The sketchbook's pages yield the entire record of his early ideas on the Agnus Dei of that work as well as a sketch for part of the Benedictus. Includes 5 pages from Artaria 205, also in side-by-side facsimile-transcription layout. Clothbound. $95 (more info... ) [item no.9490]

Complete halftone reproduction and critical edition of the MS, currently in Kraków at the Biblioteka Jagiellońska (formerly Berlin, Staatsbibliothek, Mus. ms. aut. Beethoven Landsberg 6). Once known as “Notierungsbuch E”, Landsberg 6 is perhaps Beethoven’s most famous sketchbook due in part to Nottebohm’s 1880 monograph on this source. This sketchbook documents Beethoven's creative work from sometime late in 1802 until early in 1804, a transformative period in his artistic career. The most significant sketches are those for the “Eroica” Symphony, op.55, the “Waldstein” Sonata, op.53, and for the first five numbers of the opera Leonore as produced in 1805 (later revised and renamed Fidelio).

Berlioz revised the work for years before it finally reached its definitive version. He entered many of these changes in the autograph score, which was also used for performances, by pasting strips of paper over the bars or parts in question. This facsimile edition, in high-quality 4-color reproduction, presents the manuscript as it is today—with strips of paper that can be folded out, making both versions visible. Commentary in Eng-Ger-Fr. Hardbound with quarter leather spine and boards in colorful paper. (more info... ) [item no.9541]

BOULEZ, Pierre, 1925

Tombeau. Fac-similés de l’épure et de la première mise au net de la partitur / Facsimiles of the Draft Score and the First Fair Copy of the Full Score. Édités par / Edited by Robert Piencikowski.
Eine Publikation der Paul Sacher Stiftung. Vienna, 2010. 38 x 47°, 154 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile edition of the autograph draft score and the first copy of the full score. Unlike the world première of Marteau sans maître (1952-55), that of Tombeau for orchestra (1959), which took place in Donaueschingen on 17 October 1959, passed almost unnoticed, outshone by Pierre Boulez's unexpected triumph as a conductor when he stepped in to replace Hans Rosbaud at the head of the Südwestfunk Sinfonieorchester. Originally conceived as an individual tribute to Prince Max Egon zu Fürstenberg, who died suddenly in spring 1959, the work was ultimately included in the Pli selon pli cycle (1957-62, 1983, 1990). To celebrate the composer's 85th birthday and the 50th anniversary of the world première, the Paul Sacher Foundation and Universal Edition are now publishing the two original manuscripts of the score for the first time: the pencil draft and a fair copy in different colored inks. These fine examples of high-quality reproductions are also the earliest evidence of Boulez' friendship with Paul Sacher. The composer presented the scores to Sacher in the early 1960s. The facsimiles are prefaced by an introduction, which places the work in a historical and aesthetic context and takes a look at the compositional techniques used. It is illustrated by a selection of manuscripts from different stages of the creative process, as well as other related documents. Linen. $211 (more info... ) [item no.9165]

BRAHMS, Johannes, 1833-1897

Alto Rhapsody. Opus 53. For Contralto, Men’s Chorus, and Orchestra. Text from Goethe’s Harzreise im Winter. Introduction by Walter Frisch. A Facsimile Edition from the Composer’s Autograph Manuscript in the Music Division of The New York Public Library.
New York, 1983. 24 x 30 cm, 29, 44 pp. Beautiful 3-color facsimile of the 1869 autograph fair copy (the only surviving manuscript source for the complete work), together with 2 leaves of sketches in the possession of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, Vienna. The Alto Rhapsody is one of Brahms’ most moving and successful works composed at a time when he seemed to have felt embittered and angry over the engagement and marriage of Julie Schumann (the second eldest daugther of the Schumanns’) to Count Radicati di Marmorito of Turin. According to Brahms “it is the best thing I have yet done... and if worthy altos are not immediately eager to sing it, there are nevertheless enough people who do need this kind of prayer”. This manuscript apparently was not looked at for the publication of the Sämtliche Werke in 1926. Linen. (few copies remaining) $60 (more info... ) [item no.200]

This autograph represents a first version which Brahms used as a kind of particell, scribbling indications for instrumentation, to be later realized in the full score.

There are also markings made by contemporary editors in charge of preparing the work for its first publication (Berlin: Simrock, 1886; this important source was not consulted for the edition in the Gesamtausgabe, Leipzig, 1926). Included are such personal and revealing remarks as “Nirgend a2 setzen, immer doppelt streichen! Brahms hat das lieber” (“Never use a2, always engrave double stems! Brahms prefers it!”).

[Henle Music Facsimiles, 16]. Munich, 2004. 25 x 33 cm, 28, 142 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile of the autograph score composed during a two month period in the summer of 1876. The ms is both a fair copy and working copy, as the composer revisited it several times, first before its premiere in 1878, then before a performance in 1880 and then prior to its publication in 1883. András Schiff considers it a wonderful concerto with enomous warmth, conceived in the noble tradition of Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms, but where the piano is first among equals. The facsimile allows us to see the composer’s original ideas, which vary significantly from the version by Vilém Kurz usually played since WW I, where the piano is robbed of its distinctive voice and overburdened with Lisztian gestures.

Oslo, 1993. 26 x 34 cm, 10, 138 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile of the autograph fair copy score from the Summer of 1868. After its completion the manuscript was used for a number of concerts—including the premiere in Copenhagen and a performance in Leipzig—and bears clear traces of corrections and changes to the orchestration. Although Grieg initially had difficultly finding a publisher (Fritzsch in Leipzig accepted it 1872) the piece has become one of the most frequently played compositions of its kind. Introduction in Nor-Eng. Bibliophile edition of 500 copies issued on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth.

Frankfurt, 2007. 23 x 30 cm, 16, iv. Handsome full-color facsimile of the autograph full score (revised version, 1886), issued on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the composer’s death. Peer Gynt op.23, incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's 1867 play of the same name, is one of Grieg's most iconic works, and “Morning Mood”, slightly more than 4 minutes in length is probably one of the best known even among those who have never heard of Grieg. Although written in 1875 just in time for the premiere of the play, the composer continued to revise it over the next 20 years. "Morning Mood" serves as the prelude to Act 4.

British Library Manuscript R.M. 20.g.7. Facsimile. Introduction and Commentary by Christoher Hogwood / Eingeleitet und kommentiert von Christopher Hogwood.
Documenta Musicologica, II/32. Kassel, 2004. 4˚, 26, 70 pp. Handel's great outdoor piece for strings and wind band. Halftone of the 1749 autograph score, composed for the celebration of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle. The overture is the longest single instrumental movement that Handel wrote and is scored for tpt 1-3 (x3), hn 1-3 (x3), ob 1-3 (x12, x8, x4), bsn 1-2 (x8, x4), timp (3 pairs), & bc. The manuscript also includes 2 concerti, HWV 335a and 335b, intended as interludes during oratorio performances, scored for strings, 2 ob, 2 tpt (only HWV 335a), 4 hn, bsn, timp, & bc (organ). This is a fascinating score, in Handel’s forceful script, showing his erasures by smudging, his clarifications by writing note letters over a correction, and his normal abbreviations for colla parte using custodes. The manuscript also bears evidence of arguments over scoring that went on with the civil servants organizing the spectacle. Preface in Ger/Eng. Hardbound. $65 (more info... ) [item no.8448]

HAYDN, Franz Joseph, 1732-1809

[The Creation, Hob. XXI:2, sketches] Die Schöpfung Hob.XXI:2. Skizzen. Herausgegeben von Annette Oppermann.
Joseph Haydn Werke, XXVIII/3/III. Munich, 2012 4°, 104 pp. Beautiful full-color reproduction of 36 sketch pages, hitherto unpublished, to Haydn’s oratorio “The Creation”, preserved in libraries in Vienna, London and New York. The sketches are very revealing: the famous soprano aria “On mighty pens” originally had an entirely different melody. The 5 notated beginnings of the recitative “Our duty we performed now” make it clear that Haydn even pondered very carefully such apparently standardized musical phrases before opting for a variant. The 3 surviving full-score sketches for the overture “The Representation of Chaos” show in turn how Haydn slowly developed the whole movement out of a basic idea initially outlined on only one page and garnished it with ever finer rhythmic and harmonic details. The whole set gives us a wonderful glimpse into workshop of the composer. With diplomatic transcription and notes in German. Handsome clamshell case in linen. $325 (more info... ) [item no.9267]


[Concerto, horn, orch, Hob. VIId:3, D major] Hornkonzert D-Dur, Hob. VIId:3. Faksimile der autographen Partitur. Kommentar von Ingrid Fuchs.
Vienna, 2009. 22 x 32 cm, 28, 39 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile. A fascinating and important representative of Haydn's entire concerto œuvre comes to light in this brilliant facsimile of the Horn Concerto in D Major, Hob. VIId:3. Haydn composed a relatively small group of wind concertos (6 in total), two which are lost. This work was most likely composed for the horn virtuoso Joseph Leutgeb, and in violation of his contract with the Esterházy House, since it was not written for the court orchestra. Of special mention is Haydn's note written on the last page of the score stating "in schlaff geschrieben" (written while asleep). This is due to a mistake in the scoring of the instruments and was most likely the result of Haydn composing secretly at night, half asleep. Commentary in German-English-Japanese. Limited edition of 500 copies with beautiful period design coverboards and pasted on etikette. $207 (more info... ) [item no.9120]

[Symphony, no.102, Bb major, Hob.I:102] Sinfonie Nr. 102 (”London”) Faksimile nach dem Autograph in der Staatsbibliothek Berlin. Mit einer Einleitung (deutsch/englisch) von Armin Raab.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 12. Laaber, 2010 26 x 41 cm, xvi, 57 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph fair copy composed in 1794 for Haydn's second London visit. Scored for 2 fl, 2 ob, 2 bsn, 2 hn, 2 tpt, timp, & strings, the work has all the stylistic hallmarks of the late Haydn symphony with its masterly confluence of simplicity and complexity, folkishness and sophistication. There is also the element of thematic surprise as well as orchestral excitement (the drumroll that ushers in the recapitulation in the first movement) and outrageous wit, shown by the violins getting “stuck” on a phrase in the finale and unable to remember what comes next. A fitting tribute for the celebration of the bicentenary of the composer’s death. Commentary in Ger-Eng. Hardbound in decorative paper. $142 (more info... ) [item no.9011]

Denkmäler der Musik in Salzburg, Faksimile-Ausgaben, 12. Munich, 2006. 4°, 48, 40, xl pp. Beautiful halftone of the autograph score and the first printed edition. This requiem was composed in 1805-06 on behalf of the empress Maria Theresia, probably without a specific reason. The work may have been intended for the composer himself and like the Mozart requiem it also comes down to us in an unfinished state (Introitus, Kyrie, parts of Dies irae). Haydn avoids the dark-dramatic tone of Mozart’s work and looks rather for the mild tone of an older tradition. Introduction in Ger. Wrappers. $96 [item no.9060]

MENDELSSOHN-BARTHOLDY, Felix, 1809-1847

[Concerto, violin, orch, op.64, E minor] Violinkonzert E-Moll, Opus 64. Faksimile nach dem Autograph der Bibliotheka Jagiellońska, Kraków. Mit einem Kommentar von Stefan Drees.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 10. Laaber, 2010. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xii, 68 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph score dated 16 September 1844. Mendelssohn's popular “Concerto for Violin in E Minor op.64”, a mainstay in the concerto repertoire didn't have an easy birth and is known in two versions, the sole surviving autograph of 1844—reproduced here in facsimile—and the printed edition of 1845, a more brilliant version incorporating many of the changes suggested by Ferdinad David, dedicatee of the piece and his concertmaster at Leipzig. On July 30, 1838, the composer wrote to him: “I would like to write a violin concerto for you next winter. One in E minor goes through my head and the beginning will not leave me in peace." David encouraged Mendelssohn but also expressed a desire for it to be ostentatious, a suitable showcase for the violinist's talents. Mendelssohn was not used to flamboyance for its own sake and this wish conflicted with his musical temperament, prolonging the writing of the concerto. More than six years later with only three months before it was to be performed he confided to David: “Do not laugh at me too much. I feel ashamed in any case, but I cannot help it. I am just groping around.” It was finally premiered on 13 March 1845 and published shorly thereafter by Breitkopf & Härtel. There are well over 100 changes between the two versions, mostly issues concerning tempo, orchestration, and solo parts. While some are outright shocking, where Mendelssohn has taken in the final version the solo line up or down an octave, added entirely new notes to the violin part, or slightly changed the wind writing, no matter which version is considered both are pure Mendelssohn, and all the magical elements that make the Violin Concerto what it is, that make it so beloved and so popular, are completely intact. Commentary in Ger-Eng. Linen. Issued on the occasion of the bicentenary of the composer’s birth. Hardbound with dark blue boards. $177 (more info... ) [item no.9009]

[Overture, A Midsummers Night’s Dream, op.21] Ein Sommernachtstraum. Ouvertüre op.21. Autograph, Biblioteka Jagiellońska, Kraków. Commentary by / Kommentar von Friedhelm Krummacher.
Documenta Musicologica, II/41. Kassel, 2009. 27 x 37 cm, xiii, 60, 57 pp. Full-color facsimile of the elegant fair copy autograph score (formerly Deutsche Staatsbibliothek, Mus. ms. autogr. Mendelssohn 21), and monochrome reproduction of a fragmentary autograph score (Bodleian Library, Ms. Deneke-Mendelssohn B 5)—the only surviving sources of the overture. This work of youthful genius was written in 1826 during a carefree summer spent at the summer house among his siblings at a time when the composer became immersed in the works of Shakespeare through Schegel and Tieck translations. An enchanted night, virtually fragrant dreams, floating fairies—the sensory associations evoked and fashioned by the music of Mendelssohn’s overture A Midsummer Night’s Dream are almost inexhaustible. This is without doubt Mendelssohn’s most popular concert overture. The score is innovative as well, for example, in the ordering in the instruments—proceeding woodwinds, percussion, strings, with the bass fiddle at the bottom—, though peculiar for the time, coincides with modern accepted convention. The autograph score also calls for the rare "corno inglese di basso", usually substituted by the ophecleide, bass bassoon or bass trombone. Handsome bibliophile edition issued on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth. Handsome binding with decorative paper boards, burgundy linen spine, and pasted title etikette. Commentary in Eng-Ger-Jap. Special OMI price. $440 (more info... ) [item no.9033]


[Symphony, op.90, “Italian”, A major] Sinfonie A-dur op.90 “Italienische”. Mit Kommentar von John M. Cooper und Hans-Günter Klein.
Wiesbaden, 1997. 24 x 34 cm, 2 vols, 258 pp. Begun during a particularly ebullient visit to Italy—”This is Italy! And what I, ever since I started to think, have thought to be the greatest joy of living, has now begun, and I am enjoying it”—Mendelssohn’s Symphony in A major was composed over a period of about 2 years. The manuscripts reproduced for this full-color facsimile edition (to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the composer’s death) show a conflicted composer: a “complete” autograph score of 1833, plus 11 autograph pages known as the “Oxford” fragments (removed from the complete score prior to the 1833 premiere), and a “revised” 1834 autograph score of movements II to IV, which were never finished nor incorporated into the symphony. Despite general acclaim by the public and critics alike, Mendelssohn was troubled by certain aspects of the work. Introduction in Eng-Ger. Beautiful bibliophile edition printed on laid paper and bound with green paper boards (as the original), with pasted label. $275 (more info... ) [item no.7532]

Documenta Musicologica, I/39. Kassel, 1998. 25 x 32 cm, xvi, 112 pp. Halftone of the Ricciardo Amadino print (Venice, 1609), and Act V of the libretto. The edition is remarkable for a number of reasons. For one, it is an unusual presentation of the music—in score—not altogether unknown, but relatively rare at this date, where the music centers on harmony and the basso continuo. Secondly, the print is a “commemorative” or “souvenir” edition”; the title page states that it was first performed “in Mantua l’anno 1607”, taking place under the protection of Prince Francesco Gonzaga in the “Academia degl’Invaghiti”. Several annotations in the score, usually in past tense, underline this peculiar aspect: “this chorus was accompanied by ...”, “this dance number was sung to the accompaniment...”, this ritornello was played...”, etc. Preface (Ger-Eng), including a detailed critical apparatus, by one of the great Monteverdi specialists.

A sacred motet in Latin for soprano, instruments and continuo, with two arias, a recitative and a final Alleluia, EXULTATE, JUBILATE was composed for the feast day of the Regular Theatine Clerics, and first performed on January 17, 1773. The work was specifically written for the famous castrato Venanzio Rauzzini—Mozart's "leading man" in the opera Lucio Silla being performed at that time in Milan—and the virtuosity of the piece with florid coloratura style gives us a glimpse of Rauzzini’s abilities. It combines the aria and recitative style of opera seria with the 3-part form of the Italian symphony. Introduction in It-Eng-Ger.

Although there have been many attempts of reconstructing the text of the Requiem, the 1800 printed version, largely based on Süssmayr’s work, remains the prime historical document. It is interesting that Breitkopf & Härtel provides no credit to Süssmayr for the completion of the work although correspondence in early 1800 between Gottfreid Christoph Härtel and Süssmayr clearly establishes the extent of his role.

Concerto for Horn and Orchestra in E-flat Major, K.370b + 371. Edited and with a Foreword by John B. Howard. Introductory Essays by Christoph Wolff and Robert D. Levin.
Cambridge, 1997. Oblong, 4º, 68 pp. 4-color halftone. This fascinating work, possibly commissioned for the Viennese hornist Jacob Eisen, is one of a number of incomplete concerti left by Mozart and one that suffered an unfortunate circumstance. In 1856, for the centennial of Mozart's birth, the composer's eldest son, Carl, decided to cut up and give away portions of the autograph (first movement) as souvenirs to several admirers of his father's music. Now, 150 years after Carl's strange celebration, eight of a total of nine fragments are preserved in seven libraries, six in Europe and one in the US. This facsimile offers two important reunifications of the concerto's parts. The first one, assembles and reproduces the scattered autograph fragments of the first movement (K.370b), producing an uninterrupted draft score of its first 131 measures. For the second reunification we have to be thankful to Mr. Robert Owen Lehman who has made it possible to present the autograph score of the second movement (”Concert Rondeau” K.371) in its entirety. The MS lacked a bifolio that reappeared in 1988. Mr. Lehman, who owns K.371, acquired this bifolio, miraculously completing, after nearly two centuries, this score. These extraordinary events make this publication an invaluable contribution to Mozart studies and highlight one the prime purposes and advantages of the facsimile edition: to have at one's disposal, and side by side, primary sources located thousands of miles apart.

[Concerto, piano, orch, no.9, K.271] Klavierkonzert “Jenamy” Eb-Dur KV 271. Faksimile nach dem Autograph der Bibliothek der Jagiellońska Kraków. Herausgegeben und mit einer Einführung von Ulrich Konrad.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 38. Laaber, 2017. Oblong, 4°, xxiii, 136 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph score. Michael Lorenz describes Mozart's Piano Concerto K. 271 ('Jenamy') as “a miracle of musical originality. In the mastership of its orchestration, its stupendous innovative energy and its effect, despite limited instrumental means, this piece has absolutely no precedent. It is Mozart's first great composition, 'his Eroica' as Alfred Einstein put it, 'which he later would match, but never surpass'. With a creative thrust beyond compare, a kind of musical fulguration (in the sense of the term as coined by Konrad Lorenz), Mozart broke all previous conventions and already in 1777 demonstrated the superior mastery that distinguishes his piano concertos of the Vienna years. Formal surprises are being combined with unbridled melodic exuberance”. Lorenz also made the important discovery in 2003 that the concerto—previously nicknamed “Jeunehomme”—was actually commissioned by Victoire Jenamy, an excellent pianist and daugther of the the famous dance master Jean George Noverre.

The autograph has come down to us in exceptionally fine condition, written with remarkable care and clarity, complete with Mozart’s own cadenza for the first movement unusually incorporated into the score itself. The composer’s penmanship, especially in the final movement, betrays the fact that he was working under deadline pressure, the notation becoming noticeably hastier, though it is always easy to read. The score is not a fair copy but rather a working manuscript containing in addition to later changes in scoring, many spontaneous alterations of greater or lesser importance that cropped up during the copying process. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Handsome binding in red cloth with embossed title. Special OMI introductory price. $158 (more info... ) [item no.8596]


[Concerto, piano, orch, no.24, K.491] Piano Concerto in C minor K. 491. Facsimile of the Autograph Score in the Royal College of Music, London. With a commentary by Robert Levin.
Documenta Musicologica, II/48. Kassel, 2014. Oblong, 34 x 25 cm, 74, 40 pp. Beautiful color halftone of the autograph fair copy completed on March 24, 1786. In his fascinating preface Colin Lawson, Director of the Royal College of Music, describes the journey made by Mozart’s autograph following its sale in 1800 by Constanze, Mozart’s widow, to its eventual resting place in London where it is the jewel in the RCM’s extensive collection of historic manuscripts. The Piano Concerto in C minor K. 491 is one of Mozart’s greatest piano concertos not least because of the dramatic character of its minor key (it is one of only two piano concertos composed in minor keys). It also has the largest orchestra he ever used in a piano concerto and the only piano concerto to use both oboes and clarinets. Written in 1786 during a period of almost feverish activity, it was completed only 22 days after the A major concerto K. 488 and during composition of The Marriage of Figaro. The autograph is exceptional in that Mozart records sketches that he later enlarged and extensively revised for the score thus allowing us an insight into his creative process. Mozart’s work appears here for the first time in a color facsimile, making it possible to easily recognize the contrasting colors of ink. The renowned Mozart scholar and pianist Robert Levin has written an illuminating commentary. He explains Mozart’s method of composition and guides the reader page by page through the autograph. This high-quality facsimile truly is a fascinating insight into Mozart’s art of composition. Hardbound with linen spine and decorative paper boards. $248 (more info... ) [item no.9359]

[Serenade, winds, K.361, Bb major] Gran Partita, K.361 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. A Facsimile of the Holograph in the Whittall Foundation Collection. [Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.].
Chicago, 2008. Oblong, 35 x 27 cm, 11, 98 pp. “Reissue” of Library of Congress 1976 facsimile edition using new full-color digital photography. The autograph score dates from c.1780. Known as the “Great Wind Serenade” or “Serenade for 13 Wind Instruments”, this brilliant 7-movement piece is Mozart’s first major work composed in Vienna. Scored for 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 basset horns, 2 pairs of horns, 2 bassoons and a contrabass, Mozart exploits all the possible mixtures of sonorities—no instrument is treated in true concertante fashion, but rather each instrument strives to distinguish itself, true to it own character. The beautifully crafted serenade—intimate, cheerful, witty and symphonic in style—was obviously written to impress and “open doors” in the composer’s new city.

[Serenade, strg orch, “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” K.525] Eine kleine Nachtmusik. Serenade in G-Dur KV 525. Faksimile der autographen Partitur. Einführung von Wolfgang Rehm. [Ms. Dr. Arthur Wilhelm Collection, Switzerland].
Leipzig, 1989. Oblong, 33 x 25 cm, xiii, 14 pp. Collotype of the autograph score completed August 10, 1787. This celebrated serenade or "party music" in four movements originally had a fifth movement—two minuets and their trio are now lost. The autograph calls for 2 violins, viola, violoncello and bass (string quintet) but it is often performed by a larger orchestra. The manuscript was rediscovered by Manfred Gorke in 1943; it then went to Karl Vötterle, avid collector and founder of Bärenreiter Verlag who sold it for 50,000 Deutschmarks after WW2 to help rebuild the destroyed publishing house. It is now in private hands in Basel. Introduction in Fr/Ger/Eng. Handsome binding in linen with red and gold title stamp. $75 (more info... ) [item no.3901]

Salzburg, 2011. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, 44 pp. Color halftone of the autograph, a transcription of the Finale of the Symphony in D (MH 287) by Johann Michael Haydn. Mozart made his very last visit to Salzburg the end of July 1783 to end of October to introduce Constanze to his father and sister. Immediately on the return journey to Vienna in November he began the copy of the Finale in order to perform it for Baron Gottfried van Swieten’s circle in Vienna. Mozart had participated regularly in the matinees and concerts that van Swieten, the prefect of the Imperial Library in Vienna, had privately organized. Commentary in Ger/Eng/Fr by Ulrich Leisinger.

[Symphony, no.38, “Prague”, K.504] Sinfonie Nr.38 KV 504 (“Prager” Sinfonie). Faksimile nach dem Autograph der Bibliothek Jagiellońska Krakau. Herausgegeben und mit einer Einführung von Ulrich Konrad.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 34. Laaber, 2016. Oblong, 4°, xvvi, 74 pp. Color facsimile of the autograph score completed 6 Dec. 1786. The original ms was not among those sold by Constanza to Johann Anton André, but rather took a circuitous route, believed once to be in the hands of the choir director Anton Stoll (or Ferdinand III Grand Duke of Toscana), passing to the Moravian singer Franz Hauser in 1848 and 10 years later into the collection of Franz Liszt, from whom it was transferred to the Royal Library in Berlin. The “Prague”, or third of 7 symphonies from the Vienna decade 1781-1791 occupies a unique position within Mozart’s mature works, calling for pairs of flutes, oboes, bassoons, horns, and trumpets. It’s 3-movement form is also unusual and has produced inexhaustible discussion. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Coverboards in decorative paper.

This facsimile edition sheds light on Mozart’s composing process; the accompanying commentary by Otto Biba addresses the complicated relationship between the two versions and suggests that the first autograph version, rather than representing a different version, may in fact be an intermediate “stadium” of a complicated compositional process.

PERGOLESI, Giovanni Battista, 1710-1736

Stabat mater für Sopran, Alt, Streicher & Bassso Continuo. Faksimile des Autographs herausgegeben von Tineke Steenbrink.
Magdeburg, 2013. Oblong, 4°, 88 pp. 4-color facsimile of the autograph score preserved in the Benedictine Abbey of Monte Cassino. Although Pergolesi’s œurve is often subject to misattribution, the Stabat mater in C minor is a genuine work (possibly the composer’s last), commissioned by the Confraternità dei Cavalieri di San Luigi di Palazzo (Naples). The Order presented an annual Good Friday meditation in honor of the Virgin Mary and Pergolesi’s setting replaced the one by Alessandro Scarlatti composed only 9 years earlier. This moving setting—in striking “durezze e ligature” style—conveys the story of the suffering of the Virgin Mary at the foot of the cross; it went through numerous reprinting in the 18th c. and inspired many composers including J.S. Bach. Although the work is performed today with soprano and alto solists, string orchestra and basso continuo, the original called for castrati singers (similiar to Mozart’s motet “Exultate Jubilate”). The score has many ambiguous passages, so this facsimile edition, the first of its kind, will be an important asset to scholars and musicians alike. Wrappers. $74 (more info... ) [item no.9318]

ROSSINI, Gioachino, 1792-1868

Petite messe solennelle. Facsimile del manoscritto / Facsimile of the Manuscript.
Milan, 2011. Oblong, 37.5 x 29.5 cm. viii, 252 pp. Full-color reproduction of the original 1863 autograph including the separate parts for harmonium and second piano. Rossini composed two versions of this work, the first (reproduced here in facsimile) for “Twelve singers of three sexes, men, women and castrati... that is, eight for the choir, four soloists, in all twelve cherubim”. The Petite Messe solennelle was dedicated to the Contessa Louise Pillet-Will (the count and countess were close friends of Rossini), and the first performance inaugurated the splendid new residence that the count had commissioned in Paris. The use of two pianos and harmonium may at first seem odd but given its context as a salon piece is appropriate. Rossini composed hardly at all in the period 1829 to 1855 but after returning to Paris in 1855 wrote quite a few works for private audiences. He wittingly referred to them as Péchés de vieillesse (‘sins of old age’), and wrote in the score of the Petite messe solennelle “Good God – behold completed this poor little Mass – is it indeed music for the blest [‘musique Sacrée’] that I have just written, or just some blessed music [‘Sacrée musique’]? Thou knowest well, I was born for comic opera. A little science, a little heart, that is all. So bless Thee and grant me Paradise! G Rossini – Passy 1863”.

Gurre-Lieder. Reproduktion des Autographs nach der Faksimileausgabe von 1912. Herausgegeben von Ulrich Krämer.
Arnold Schönberg Sämtliche Werke, A/V/16,2. Mainz, 2002. 28 x 38 cm, viii, 181 pp. Beautiful line-cut reproduction in slightly reduced format of the 1912 facsimile issued by Universal. Gurre-Lieder is a large cantata for five vocal soloists, narrator, chorus and large orchestra, based on poems by the Danish novelist Jens Peter Jacobsenwith. Begun in 1900 as a song cycle for soprano, tenor and piano, and written in lush late-romantic Wagnerian style, the work was repeatedly put aside for other projects and not completed until 1911. Its premiere took place in Vienna under the baton of Franz Schreker, and the performance received positive reviews. In "Des Sommerwindes wilde Jagd" Schoenberg introduced for the first time the vocal technique "Sprechgesang", later explored in Pierrot Lunaire. The original manuscript now resides at the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York. Commentary by Ulrich Krämer. Linen. $207 (more info... ) [item no.9034]

SCHUMANN, Robert, 1810-1856

[Symphony, no.1, op.38, Bb major] Symphony. Opus 38. [Ms. Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.].
New York, 1967. 24 x 31 cm, xxvi, 196 pp. Monochrome halftone of the complete autograph score preserved in the Library of Congress, Washington DC, including 16 pages of sketches, sketches for a choral work “Herr, Herr hast Du mich ganz verlassen”, and corrections.. This is Schumann's first version of the “Spring” Symphony dating from 1841, which has some interesting differences from the familiar version published by Breitkopf and Härtel. The 1841 version opens with the fanfare of horns and trumpets on the tonic B flat rather than a third higher on D; the subsequent change may have stemmed from problems with the brass at the first rehearsal (under Mendelssohn). Another difference is the Scherzo having only a single Trio. Other changes includes scoring, but an arresting moment comes at the beginning of the finale where Schumann interpolates a rather engaging flute cadenza, removed for the printed score. Cloth. Rare [item no.1951]

[Symphony no.13, op.113, Bb minor, “Babi Yar”] Simfonija no.13 Partitura. Faksimile / Symphony No.13. Score. Facsimile.
Moscow, 2006. 24 x 32 cm, 196 pp. Facsimile edition of the autograph full score issued on the ocassion of the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth. A poem by Yevgeny Yevtushenko, a young, but already very well-known poet at that time, called “Babi Yar”, served as the stimulus for beginning work on the symphony. Babi Yar is a ravine on the northwest outskirts of Kiev, where, carrying out Hitler’s plans to execute the “final solution”, the German troops who occupied Ukraine shot approximately 100,000 Jews in 1941-1943. Shostakovich writes: “I am in some quandary... I don’t know who will be able to sing it. ...But in the meantime, I came up with the idea of writing something else along the same lines to Yevtushenko’s words. His little volume of poetry is making me think about writing a symphony in which “Babi Yar” will be the first or second movement. ...I hope Yevtushenko will now write me the poem I asked for. This is how the 13th Symphony is taking shape”. The work experienced unexpected twists and turns during its emergence and development of its central idea, and by dramatic upheavals in the fate of the finished work. After its premiere, the performance of this symphony was long banned, and it was never published in the author's homeland in its original and unadulterated form. This high-quality reproduction makes this masterpiece accessible for the first time in its authentic form and gives us a glimpse into the composer’s creative process. The introductory article by Manashir Jakubov (Rus-Eng) gives the first detailed account of the composition and premiere of this symphony. Cloth. $350 (more info... ) [item no.8766]


Tahiti-trott (Tea for Two von Vincent Youmans) op.16. Faksimile des Partiturautographs. Festgabe zum 60. Geburtstag von Hermann Danuser, herausgegeben von der Paul Sacher Stiftung.
Eine Publikation der Paul Sacher Stiftung. [Hamburg], 2006. 30 x 39, 71, 6 pp. Full color facsimile of Shostakovich’s full score autograph of the orchestra arrangement of the musical hit “Tea for Two”. The composer evidently became acquainted with the Russian version of the song—called “Tahiti-Trott”—in 1926 in the Meyerhold Theater, where it formed a number in a theater piece. The composer’s arrangement (for large orchestra) dates from 1927 and was stimulated by the conductor Nikolaj Malko to whom it was dedicated. As the new proletariat orientation of the Soviet culture took place Shostakovitch was compelled to distance himself from the work which was criticized for its decadent Western posture. Although a set of parts existed in the Soviet Union, allowing occasional performances and providing the basis of two posthumous editions (1984 & 2006), the original manuscript stayed in the possession of Malko until 1989, when it passed to the Paul Sacher Foundation. This publication, a festschrift honoring the 60th birthday of Hermann Danuser, presents for the first time a complete facsimile edition, accompanied by 5 essays and a reproduction of the 1926 Russian edition of Tahiti-Trott.

SIBELIUS, Jean, 1865-1957

Luonnotar op. 70. Facsimile of the Autograph Score and the Piano Reduction / Faksimile der autographen Partitur und des Klavierauszugs. Edited by T. Virtanen.
Jean Sibelius Werke. Wiesbaden, 2015. 25 x 32 cm, 88 pp. Special edition issued on the occasion of the 150th birthday of the composer. The large orchestral song Luonnotar is considered one of the boldest works of Jean Sibelius. This alone would be reason enough to print the autograph sources (full score and piano reduction) as a color facsimile for the Sibelius Anniversary Year 2015. In addition, the autograph score also has a special significance for the transmission: it ensured the survival of the entire work after World War II; the source material for the printer compiled by Breitkopf & Härtel had been destroyed in an air-raid bombing in 1943. The meticulously elucidated volume is the first complete facsimile edition of an orchestral work by Jean Sibelius – a milestone in Sibelius editorial history that meaningfully supplements the complete edition Jean Sibelius Works as a truly special volume.

Frankfurt, 1999. 30 x 40 cm, 38, ii pp. Handsome line-cut of the autograph full score. Strauss prepared a new manuscript of the tone poem “Till Eulenspiegel” (1895) in 1944, presented here in this facsimile edition. He writes to his grandson Richard on 3 Oct. 1944, deeply disconsolate at the destruction of the war: “The day before yesterday I began to write out the Eulenspiegel score once again; it’s a more intelligent occupation than fabricating more decrepit original works.... This work gives me a lot of pleasure and at least keeps me from thinking about other things”. The manuscript, dedicated not only to his children and grandchildren but “to the good Till himself on his fifieth birthday”, is largely identical to the original score, however not without some significant refinements: in the final bars where the reinforcement of horns 4 to 8 could be dropped (“ad libitum”), Strauss has combined the original six trumpets into a rich three voice texture.

Per il “Re Lear”. Facsimile dell’autografo a cura di Gabriella Carrara Verdi.
Parma, 2002. 29 x 42 cm, 194 pp. Deluxe facsimile—issued on the occasion of the centenary of Verdi’s death—reproducing all the surviving source material for Lear, mainly the heavily marked-up libretto drafts of Cammarano and Somma, as well as pertinent correpondence, including full transcriptions. Sometimes referred to as the composer’s “missing masterpiece”, Verdi first thought of making an operatic King Lear in June of 1843. In 1848, after Cammarano agreed to do the libretto, Verdi writes to him: “Re Lear as a play is so vast and interwoven that it would seem to be impossible to fashion an opera from it. But, examining it closely it seems that the challenges, though large, are not insurmountable. You know that you should not treat this play using forms and methods that are familiar, but rather should treat it in an entirely new manner, one that is vast and shows no regard for customary forms”. Unfortunately Cammarano’s first draft turned out to be unwieldy and when the librettist died in 1852 Verdi turned to Antonio Somma to revise it. There were various roadblocks, one was who would sing the role. In a letter of 1853 Verdi states, to do Re Lear, “one would need an artist baritone in every sense of that phrase, for example, as was Giorgio Ronconi”. Yet Ronconi was not performing. Presumably Verdi did write some music for Lear and when the Paris Opera approached him in 1865 the idea of Lear was considered: “Re Lear is magnificent, sublime, pathetic, but it does not have enough scenic splendor for the Paris Opera.” (Don Carlo was chosen instead).

Croft, William. Canticles and Anthems with Orchestra. Edited by Donald Burrows.
Musica Britannica, XCI London, 2011. 4º, li, 207, 26 pp. Modern critical edition. William Croft's career as the leading native-born composer of English church music was established in the period between the death of Purcell and the arrival of Handel in London. His education took place among musicians from Purcell's circle, and his style was modified by the influence of Handel's 'Utrecht' Te Deum and Jubilate of 1713. All the music in this volume was composed for various royal church services that took place between 1709 and 1720, in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace and in St Paul's Cathedral. The contents include the Te Deum and Jubilate Deo, sung at the coronation of George I, and the anthems The Lord is a sun and a shield, O give thanks unto the Lord, and call upon his name, O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious, and Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous.
