    Great stuff! It's a very close call but on most days this is probably my favourite mass by Mr Z - would be great if it was performed more. Your handiwork is not yet approved but the IMSLP mods but once it is I am very curious to see if you were true to Zelenka in bar 5 of the Cum sancto / Dona nobis in the first violins. That outrageous (and in fugual writing overall quite unprecedented) flourish does not seem to be in the published modern edition (Breitkopf) and is not played on the Bernius disc (it is however to be heard on the earlier, Guttler recording so I wonder if they performed from a different edition). I also wondered what you did with the Quoniam - when I recently transcribed that for piano (also on IMSLP) I noticed that Zelenka had been rather inconsistent with some of the figurations which recapitulate.
    Perhaps you can do ZWV 14 next :-) It's the most bombastic of all his masses and it's begging for more performances too.

    Announcing modern editions of the following works (including the complete score, parts and LilyPond 2.18.0 engraving files):

    • Missa Dei Filii ZWV Z 20
      (Note: The final movement proved quite challenging. It seems Zelenka did not complete some sections towards the end of the fugue, e.g., T. bars 663ff or A. 704ff. Moreover, there are almost no bass figures in the Cum Sancto Spirito. I took the liberty to add appropriate bass figures and tried to complement the missing voices. Of course, I documented my interventions in the critical remarks.)

    • Sub tuum praesidium ZWV Z 157
      (I prepared those ten movements already back in November, but almost forgot them -- what a shame! Zelenka used some really nice contrapuntal ideas in these settings.)

    You're a real treasure, Skaf! The efficiency with which you work on those things, and the quality of the resulting scores, are simply mind-boggling!

    Impressive indeed! Though I would have been prepared to wait another week if Skaf could also bring us the Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus and Agnus from ZWV 20

    And thank you very much for including the engraving files!

    Now, the front matter looks really snazzy too. May I ask how you prepared it, Skaf? Am I getting it right that you used the fonts from, say, here: https://bitbucket.org/georgd/eb-garamond/downloads and then used XeLaTeX or LuaLaTex?

    Now we have a new edition of the Credo ZWV 32 by Werner Jaksch at IMSLP. Another piece with three trombones! And two choirs!!

    To conclude the late masses:
    Announcing a modern edition of Zelenka's Missa Omnium Sanctorum ZWV Z 21, including, as usual, the complete score, parts and LilyPond 2.18.0 engraving files.

    @rnkt: I sincerely hope that Zelenka did *not* compose the missing movements of the Missa Dei Filii, otherwise I would have to grieve for this (doubtlessly great, but) lost music …

    @Elwro: Using Duffner's OTF files with LuaLaTeX/fontspec/microtype would be my usual approach (which I followed, for example, in my thesis). However, I have to admit that I simply wrote the front matter with LibreOffice (and "faked" a few typographic features ).

    You're a true hero, Skaf. [After comparing your rendition of Kyrie 1 and mine I really feel like an idiot, I have no idea how I missed quite a few important things...]

    Thank you very very much!

    Same here, your edition shows up a few obvious errors in my Sanctus scores!

    Thanks for sharing the great work
