Misc. Notes Derived from Rosner´s score
The oboe parts differ partially from the autograph of Zelenka
The figures of the continuo part are not included in Rosner´s score, but here augmented from the autograph. In the first 32 measures and the last 19 measures of movement 3 the figures are missing, because the autograph does not contain these measures.

Misc. Comments

The Misere II (movement 2) and the Sicut erat (movement 5) are adaptions of Frescobaldis "Recercar Con obligo Del Basso come apare." The first edition of that and a copy made by Zelenka is on Frescobaldis workpage "Fiori Musicali".

Notable recording: Il Fondamento (Paul Dombrecht)
