- That's the Alto 2's "...of the Lord," in measure 84 of the regularly barred CPDL #00147. Error message says "a few"; are there more? Richard Mix 20:04, 18 February 2011 (CST)
- also II.29.1 first note of "asked" should be Eb rather than F, and II.69.2 should be E natural, even if it's just ficta Zenbobby (talk) 05:18, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
CPDL #22158 This is stated to be 'at original pitch' (it's in F) and the information has been amended to specify a tenor soloist for this 'original pitch'. However, all the performances I have heard (except one) and all the performances I have taken part in use a counter-tenor soloist and SAATB choir, singing in A flat.
What is the contributor's reference for the assertion that F was the original pitch?
OK, counter-tenors capable of singing the solo are few these days and an F edition is perhaps more practical, and indeed welcome if it allows more performances of this wonderful piece, but 'at original pitch' ???
I think the information cover page should be at least neutral on what the original pitch was.
