Le martyre de saint Sébastien (Debussy, Claude)
Manuscript, 1910. (Debussy & Caplet)
I made this version using MuseScore, based upon the manuscript published here and the piano reduction by Caplet. I apologize for such a small typeset, but MuseScore still has some issues (can't hide staves individually for each system), so I couldn't make it bigger and therefore more easily readable.

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.
