URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. 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'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

  • The full score of the 1846 version is 36-bar long (Bruckner Gesamtausgabe, Band XXI/13). The score provided by Alexander Reuter is 24-bar long, i.e., without the bars 21 to 32, which are crossed-out in the manuscript. These 12 bars are put as "vi-de" in the Gesamtausgabe.
  • The revised version of 1888 is the fifth Tantum ergo in the fascicule of the first edition, which contains also the 1888 version of the 4 Tantum ergo, WAB 41.
