Publisher. Info. Philadelphia: Duffy & Lawton, 1857.
Misc. Notes Score also notes availability also from composer. Somewhat scrunched appearance of being a vocal score but apparently everything is there if not ideally clear (opening section specifies Kyrie et Dona - apparently judging from the closing page this does indeed mean that the material from the Kyrie is used to new words for the closing Dona Nobis after the Agnus Dei, rather than having, say, a Dona movement after the Kyrie.
