  • (Posted 2016-11-03)  CPDL #41674:        (Sibelius 5)
Editors: Jonathan Goodliffe and Mick Swithinbank (submitted 2016-11-03).   Score information: A4, 12 pages, 122 kB    Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: The manuscript applies a tempo of “largo” to the first 8 bars of the Kyrie and “andante giusto” to the remainder of the work. The manuscript, however, appears to date from the late 19th Century and it seems unlikely that the tempi were applied to the work until after the composer’s death. Revisions to underlay 5/11/16
