Beethoven, Ludwig van

Missa solemnis
op. 123


This facsimile edition meticulously reproduces the autograph in high-quality four-colour printing and clearly shows what a difficult work process this work entailed; Beethoven tore out several pages and even sewed in replacement pages. Our edition replicates the page stubs and fold-out pages in every detail. Judicious inscriptions with movement headings, continuous pagination, scholarly foliation and measure numbers are also included to help readers find their way more easily in the manuscript.
