Mozart's Missa in C K. 317, erroneously dubbed the "Coronation Mass," is among the most popular and most often performed works in this genre. The autograph of the Mass, which in many respects is very enlightening, was regarded as having been lost following the end of World War II, but was discovered at the end of the 1970s, it is preserved among the musical treasures contained in the Biblioteka Jagiellonska in Krakow. Ulrich Leisinger, the editor, prepared the edition based upon what is, without a doubt, the only authentic source, although additionally in the Critical Report he has also consulted an early copy of the Mass (by Fugerl), since such later copies often help to clarify questions concerning historical performance practice. This work is now available in carus music, the choir app! Score and part available separately - see item CA.4061800.
