Misc. Comments

Masses by Anton Bruckner

  • Referred as Messe ohne Gloria in d-Moll by Uwe Harten, pp. 288-289.
  • Presumably a mass for the Lent, a Credo was foreseen, but was not composed. 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.
