Discrepancies in scores of Brucker motets

Postby Mateusz Luczak » Tue Oct 11, 2016 11:38 am

I have found at least 4 errors in the scores of Bruckner motets which reappear again and again even in most recent scores provided by Alexander Reuter for IMSLP and claimed to be based on manuscript sources. The first three are not even mentioned in Nowak's Revisionbericht, which discusses differences between manuscripts and first editions.
Here is a list:

Virga Jesse bar 48 alto: most scores: G natural - C flat - B flat - D natural, manuscript: G natural - C natural - B flat - D natural
Virga Jesse bar 70 bass: most scores: A natural - A natural - G - G, manuscript: A natural - A natural - G sharp - G sharp
In jener letzen der Nachte bar 21 tenor, the last note in the bar: most scores: C, manuscript: B flat
Vier Tantum ergo, revised ed. (1888), Tantum ergo I in B flat major, bar 18 alto:
most scores: E flat - E flat - E flat, manuscript and Revisionbericht: E flat - E natural - E natural.

This means that errors found in first editions persist. I am wondering whether these errors can be found in authoritative editions, both old and new or even these about to be published in the future. I would be grateful if someone who has some authoritative editions of Bruckner motets could check if the errors I have found are there or not.

Certainly it would be good to contact Alexander Reuter about this (I have no idea how?). However, since Bruckner manuscripts and first editions are generally available, I am looking for someone who has access to modern authoritative editions to check these particular bars.

I decided to post again the list of questions about Bruckner motets:

Virga Jesse bar 48 alto: C flat or C natural?
Virga Jesse bar 70 bass: G or G sharp?
In jener letzen der Nachte bar 21 tenor, the last note in the bar: C or B flat?
Vier Tantum ergo, revised ed. (1888), Tantum ergo I in B flat major, bar 18 alto: E flat or E natural?

I will appreciate any reply.
