Misc. Notes:

These file(s) are part of the Werner Icking Music Collection. Perhaps it would be sensible where the composer notates a full ending to the first piece and a double bar to insert a -rest- in the MIDI, or some such, instead of going attacca into the second. Thumbs down for that.

Misc. Notes:

Contains a rehearsal piano part.
scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

Misc. Comments

Brahms lists the piano part as "Nur zur etwaigen Aushülfe beim Einstudien" -- "To be used only to facilitate the study of the work" (for rehearsal only).

The genesis of this work is discussed in Beller-McKenna (2004), Brahms and the German Spirit, Cambridge University Press (especially the chapter "National Prayers in the Fest- und Gedenksprüche", pp.133–164 (judging from Google Preview).) The author gives a date of ca.1889 for composition but believes planning for the work did begin in 1888. (Which makes sense; Brahms' works were often the result of much "pre-composition" (to quote a teacher in a Brahms chamber music seminar...)) (not meant as a response to the above, just distinguishing my comment - sorry, indentation ambiguous ) - Schissel
Described as "motets" on Harmonia Mundi and on Naxos (but not on the original score?)
