Misc. Comments

Worldcat, at least, notes no mention I have found of Masses in G major by Schuster (this one, anyway) in editions older or newer, nor recordings either. (Correction now- others in other keys, mostly also in manuscript, yes- but none in G, not even this one which Worldcat doesn't seem to see at all...) SBB does have a score of another, his Mass No.1 in D minor, from slightly earlier (1768). Some religious music of his has been published in modern editions (a Stabat Mater in 2001, for example. With that in mind I will look again at Worldcat and some other sources to be doubly sure that this has not seen modern publication; for if it had a performance in Schuster's own time it would probably not have been a public one. Though perhaps so- this was post-Telemann, after all, and Telemann can be given part of the credit for in some sense inventing the modern public concert, I think, a little while before this mass was written... ) A few masses and mass movements by Schuster are at various other libraries.- Schissel (update: RISM lists several others in G.)
