Performance edition by William Evans, 2017.

My grateful thanks to the staff of the Museo Internazionale e Biblioteca della Musica di Bologna for their kind assistance in accessing their collection.

Note values halved, tempo markings and musica ficta are editorial. A basso continuo part has been realised from the vocal parts.

Grancini wrote this collection of masses according to the Milanese Ambrosian rite: Gloria, single Kyrie, Credo, Sanctus and Benedictus, no Agnus Dei. Apppropriate chant has been added, and an Agnus Dei arranged from the Kyrie for use in the Tridentine rite.
