It seems that choral members have at least three different editions of Haydn's Nelson Mass (Schott and two Novello editions). Page numbers are different; some have bar numbers - but not all; worse: some have more bars than others!
Small differences are being discovered as each new section is rehearsed, with Gordon deciding which variations to adopt. As these are in each voice part, I (Ed) can't explain them all here. I think it's just important to say that if you miss a practice, please ensure you ask around to update your score!
Please note that there will be a practice on Easter Monday, 22nd April, as it's the final Monday before our performance on Saturday 27th April.
