Beatus Vir edited by Martin Banner. For SATB choir, piano, optional horns, strings and continuo. Octavo. 16 pages. Duration 3 minutes, 10 seconds. Published by Carl Fischer (CF.CM9366).
Carl Fischer is excited to publish the music of relative unknown composer Stanislao Mattei, a student of Padre Martini. Prolific editor Martin Banner's modern performing edition of Mattei's Beatus Vir is based upon a hand-copied score found in Bologna, Italy and adheres closely to the original source. Advanced mixed ensembles of all sizes will enjoy singing this choral gem from the Classical period.
