        It’s rather heavy compared to the older scores.

        Fairly clear text and simplied accompaniment (octaves in bass and thick chords removed). Staves and text are small but clear.
        Has same page numbers as the old edition and music is identical yet numerous small changes to the text mean that using the two editions together as suggested in the preface means quite a few changes to the old edition. Not clear why some of the text changes have been made. Like all "new" Novello editions is bigger and heavier than the old edition.

        New edition. The German text is somewhat distracting. Also seems a pity that the organ accompaniment version is no longer available...

        fantastic just what I needed as an early music performer

        Just used the score to-day at rehearsal and found it very easy to use despite being written in English/German. Revised note values in some sections make for a "cleaner" sound and improve diction.
