    The print quality is very good but the English lyrics are below the German and in italics, so quite hard to read. There are measure numbers but no dynamic markings. (I'm not reviewing the music, which is of course beautiful.)

    What I find missing and surprising for a B. ed. is the absence of a preface or any scholarly notation (aside from the typical recommended appoggiature). If you're singing a Messiah, I'd recommend other, more scholarly, and much lighter scores to hold in front of you.
