Files "cleaned" Mar/11

Marc Antoine Charpentier

Messe de Minuit

There are several editions of the Score for this Work. The version here is much like the Henry Lemoine score, but if you want one more like the Schott score you'll find it here. In the Lemoine version the music is "swung" - that is, pairs of quavers are implemented either as quaver+semi-quaver as a triplet, or as a dotted quaver+semi-quaver (see this link).

There is an excellent - "swung" - performance of this Work by King's College, Cambridge on YouTube starting here.

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work:-

3: Credo

That's the end of the Work.
