Former owner:
Mus. 2356-D-2: Jan Dismas Zelenka. Inventarium 9/40 or 41?. Margin = ‘manca’; -D-2a: Royal Collection (Maria Josepha?)
Mus. 2356-D-2: A damaged score copy of Kyrie and Gloria setting by Sarri. The cover is missing. No caption title.
According to the SLB card catalogue this score once had a title page in Zelenka’s hand naming the work ‘Missa S. Joannis Nepomunci à 5’.
NB: John of Nepomuk was canonized in 1729. The title of the Inventarium entry (‘Missa Divi Nepomuceni’), and the date and title of the Prague copy (CZ Pnm, XXXIII-A-28. ‘1723 A: ‘Missa Divo Joanni Nepomuceno Sacra’) suggest that the copy received by Zelenka pre-dated the canonization of John of Nepomuk in 1729. After canonization the score must have been re-titled. (See the title given in SLB card catalogue).
No sign of working by Zelenka is evident in this score.
The Dresden copyist (identified by Horn as ZS 1 = from early 1730s) had little understanding of figured bass. Errors abound.
This work is a ‘number ’setting: the Gloria comprises ten movements, many with instrumental obbligatos.
Incipits are given in Zelenka-Dokumentation, 66, Nr. 209.
Mus. 2356-D-2a: A Neapolitan source.
A damaged score copy of the same Kyrie and Gloria setting by Domenico Sarri with a sticker with the number ‘30’. The final pages of the score are missing.
Title page: No: 1 | Messa à 5 Voci con ripieni V.V. Trombe, ed Obuè | Del Sig.r Dom:co Sarri.
This is probably the “Missa à 5’ of Sarri listed in the music catalogue of Maria Josepha.
See Bacciagaluppi & Stockigt, ‘Italian Manuscripts of Sacred Music in Dresden’, Table 4, 162.
