Editor: Ross Jallo (submitted 2018-10-20).   Score information: Letter, 12 pages, 207 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: This performing edition is unabashedly non-scholarly: transposed up a minor third, with halved note values, as well as editorial accidentals and slurs added. Indications for decani and cantoris have been left out. The bare-bones organ part in Musica Deo sacra has been fleshed out (though it may be omitted altogether). Produced for St. Luke's Quartet (Dixon, Illinois).
