Misc. Notes:

scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

Misc. Comments

Sacred cantata (Prodigal Son story), not opera, though has been presented so.

Actually, it is sometimes described as a cantata, but also (however accurately) as an oratorio or a lyric scene. How did the composer describe it (on score or in correspondence, of which he left a good deal?) - Schissel
