[Cantata 79] Gott der Herr ist Sonn und Schild (BWV 79). Faksimile nach dem Partiturautograph der Deutschen Staatsbibliothek Berlin mit einem Kommentar von Hans-Joachim Schulze. [Mus. ms. Bach P. 89].
Leipzig, 1988. 23 x 37 cm, v, 28 pp. Halftone of the autograph in its original loose bifolio format. Scored for solo SAB, SATB chorus, flutes, oboes, horns, timpani, strings & continuo.

[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]

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]

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.
