Miserere, ZWV 57 (Zelenka, Jan Dismas)
Derived from Rosner´s score
The oboe parts differ partially from the autograph of Zelenka
The figures of the continuo part are not included in Rosner´s score, but here augmented from the autograph. In the first 32 measures and the last 19 measures of movement 3 the figures are missing, because the autograph does not contain these measures.
