At long last, a definitive edition providing an authentic and fresh perspective on this time-honored oratorio. Since the page layout remains identical to the old Schirmer/Spicker edition, you can now replace worn copies with this new publication that has been entirely reedited.

Singers will rejoice now that the music pages are no longer cluttered with editorial footnotes and annotations. Instead, endnotes are used to provide comprehensive and practical information. Other features included the addition of text sources, breath marks, measure numbers, timings, rehearsal and performance suggestions, and much more.
