URTEXT EDITION 
This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.
Copyright
Misc. Notes Only what Mozart himself wrote, without additions by other hands.
The additions of unidentified musicians (who are probably not Süssmayr and Freystädtler) in the Kyrie were thought to be Mozart's at the time this edition was published. Only the bottom five lines of the score (choir, cellos, basses, and organ, including figured bass) were actually written by Mozart.
