Originally a mass for ‘similar voices’ (ATTB), here transposed up a fourth from the key of D min into G min for SATB. Basso continuo arranged for organ by editor to be used as desired. Credo omitted, note values halved (except for Agnus), tempo indications and rests at phrase endings are editorial.
