Misc. Comments

Masses by Anton Bruckner

  • Presumably a mass for the Lent. A Credo was foreseen, but was not composed. Referred as Messe ohne Credo in d-Moll by Uwe Harten, pp. 288-289.
  • The manuscript, with, on the front page, an autograph indication "Sine Gloria", contains two blank pages with an autograph indication that they were to contain a Credo in F major.
