Mozart Mass in C major (K.317) (Coronation Mass) (Arrangement for female choir SMezA) Vocal score
The choral scene is in a state of change! On one hand, more and more choirs are lacking in male voices, yet at the same time, more and more female choirs are looking for high-quality repertoire beyond popular arrangements. Bärenreiter is responding to these general trends with the publication of arrangements for three-part female choir (Sop, MezSop, Alto) of well-known, frequently-performed works.
The first editions to be published are Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Coronation Mass” K. 317 (BA 5691), a much-performed work within the standard repertoire and the “Missa brevis in D major” K. 194 (BA 5690-90), a charming alternative for use in church services. With great skill and sensitivity to the music, Heribert Breuer has carefully retained the substance of the original works, at the same time giving them a completely new sound quality.
- Arrangements for female choir (SMA) based on the Urtext of the “New Mozart Edition”
- Straight-forward piano reductions
- Organ, string parts to the original edition BA4880, with trombones, can be used
- Vocal Score to the original SATB edition BA4880-90 may be used by soloists
Heribert Breuer was professor of choral conducting and music theory at the Berlin University of the Arts until 2010. He is founder and director of the Berlin Bach Akademie, and has made a name for himself with his numerous arrangements of works from Bach to Schubert.
