Edition notes: Performance edition by William Evans, 2015. Transcribed from a manuscript c.1800 in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin - Preußischer Kulturbesitz. 19623. My grateful thanks to the Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek for providing this resource online. Note values halved, tempo markings, musica ficta and rests at phrase endings are editorial. Benedictus and Osanna II were not included in the original manuscript. The editor has arranged material from the Christe eleison for the Benedictus & changed the Osanna into triple time for variety. Chant from Graduale Romanum, Ordinarium Missae (Kyriale) -VIII In festis II. classis 5. (Missa de Angelis), included if a threefold Agnus is required. Underlay changed for polyphony to ‘dona nobis pacem.’
