Description

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. Based on Handel’s autograph and conducting scores, Van Camp corrected over 100 notational and textual errors which appeared in the Spicker edition and also provided a fine keyboard accompaniment that lines comfortably under the fingerswith the original bass line fully restored. Other features include the addition of text sources, breath marks, measure numbers, timings, rehearsal and performance suggestions, and much more. The companion textbook, A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR PERFORMING, TEACHING AND SINGING MESSIAH is an essential tool for anyone undertaking a performance of this great masterwork.
