The Glagolitic Mass, a significant sacred work in Leos Janacek's output only appears towards the end of his life.
Janacek composed this work for soloists, chorus and orchestra in Old Church Slavonic in the spa resort of Luhacovice in the summer and autumn 1926. He revised it at the end of 1927 after its first performance (Brno, 5.12.1927).
The score of the mass was only published after the composer's death in 1929.

The later revision, known as the"final authorised version", is contained in this study score edition. This is the significant version which is mostly used for performances. It is richer in orchestration, easier to learn and more stringent in some important passages.

- Study score based on the"Complete Critical Edition of the Works of Leos Janacek", vol. B/5-I
- Detailed foreword and description of the sources by the editor (Cz/Eng/Ger)
- Old Church Slavonic text in the version by Radoslav Vecerka

  • December 26, 2018 Janacek Glagolitic Mass Final Edition

    It is very important for all lovers of this magnificent work to have the final, authorized version of the mass in this scholarly edition. There is a detailed preface in which the editors describe the work's history both as to composition and performances. The quality of the physical product...

    is excellent, but it would have been more valuable were it in a larger format so as to make it easier to read and follow the score.
