Navigation etc.

  • There are 2 Credo settings (7 movements total) in the published score, but neither claims to be original work. The main setting is Nicola Montani's (1880-1948) harmonization of Credo III with interpolated polyphony by Montani. Appended to the end is a harmonization of Credo V by Carlo Rossini (1890-1975).
  • The indication "With Organ or Orchestra" is situated on the title page beneath the indications for the arrangements, so it is difficult to tell whether either of these is an arrangement with the mixed chorus version as well. Tagged with both as original for now, subject to correction if an orchestral version is ever uploaded that clarifies this.
