Editor Julius Rietz (1812-1877)
Publisher. Info. Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdys Werke, Serie 14C
Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel, 1875. Plate M.B. 113.
Misc. Notes 2 additional pages (end of volume) (1875: Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1875), p.305; Worldcat confirms that 1875 is on score- not on this excerpt, but this is an internal excerpt. Do not use "n.d." with internal excerpts, since "n.d." means NO valid date of copyright, and copyright is on front/inner front pages- which is not what we have here- so how would we know? (By checking WorldCat, in this case, we can at least be closer to certain.))

Publisher. Info. Leipzig: C.F. Peters, No.1770b, n.d.(1878?). Plate 6065.
Reprinted Frankfurt, n.d.(after 1950)
Misc. Notes The plate says(...?) that the original (not reprint) was (probably- the reasoning here is not certain) included in the probably 1878 (Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1878), p.86) edition "Motetten : Kirchenmusik für Chor mit Orgelbegleitung und für Chor a capella" which Worldcat (see WorldCat) gives plates 1770a/b (though HMB does not mention any works w/o opus number being in the set.)
