Misc. Comments

Also Missa Brevis in honorem B. Mariae Virginis. Unlike classical missae breve, however, contains settings of movements past the Gloria; brevis here just means brief.

At least in the Fischer edition but presumably generally, each movement begins somewhat into the text (e.g. the Gloria begins not with Gloria in excelsis deo but with Et in terra pax) presumably because, as with Renaissance masses- for which this is also generally true- the opening verse is meant to be intoned in chant, not in counterpoint.
