Misc. Comments

  • Unclear if the violin parts are solo or multiple-to-a-part but RISM has 5 entries for a "Alma redemptoris mater" by Novak; the RISM entry that matches the vocal incipit of this page says " S, A, T, Coro S, Coro A, Coro T, Coro B, vl (2), bc".
  • "Alma redemptoris mater" a Marian hymn, per Wikipedia... [Wikipedia is not that scholarly at times, and Grove Music defines it as a Marian antiphon.]
