Misc. Comments

  • Solos: SA in Credo and S in Agnus.
  • Composition date from DUX 0720. According to the notes, this mass was published by Gebethner and Wolff in 1860. But plate number 503 should be some 10 years later, so this can't be the first edition, or there is an error in the notes: maybe the first edition was not Gebethner's.
