Misc. Notes ca.160dpi color images (#428162). ca.300dpi color images (segments 1-3). This file is based on high-resolution images obtained from the source using a method explained on this page. Copyist's manuscript with autograph and additional markings. Source: Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Mus.Hs.29301. See also: Bruckner online. Schimatschek's score is an intermediate score with changes, corrections and annotations towards the second version of the Mass. A few examples: p. 55: the melody of the "Et incarnatus est" is already as in the second version, pp. 61-62: the interlude by the woodwinds is crossed out and replaced by that of the second version (horn and trombones), p. 81: the score of the bass trombone is already as in the second version, p. 87: the intermediate "sanctus, sanctus, sanctus" by the female voices is crossed out, pp. 109-110: the horn plays already in descending arpeggio as in the second version.
