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 lies comfortably under the fingers--with the original bass line fully restored. 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 There is also a very helpful companion textbook: A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR PERFORMING, TEACHING AND SINGING MESSIAH.
