- BA 5038-90 replaces the previous vocal score but retains its longstanding article number.

- The pagination has been adopted from the previous edition.

- This means that you can rehearse and perform this work with some singers using this new edition and some the old Bärenreiter edition.

- The vocal score is fully compatible with all existing performance material (BA 5038).

- The vocal score now contains a revised piano reduction. The reliable Alfred Dürr piano reduction has been maintained but it has been revised and uncluttered; it is now easier to read and to play.

- The text appears in slightly larger type size and a more legible font.

- A more exact placing of underlaid words has been included in the vocal parts.

- Apart from corrections, the musical text remains unchanged.

- The recommended retail price remains unchanged.
