I've just had a squint at IMSLP, which I do daily in case anything interesting turns up and, by gum, it has today. The RCM has uploaded the holograph MS of the full score of the sacred cantata The Atonement which SC-T wrote in 1903 for the Three Choirs Festival (which took place in Hereford that year).  Grin

It's blocked pending copyright review at present, but as soon as it's cleared I shall be in there like a rat up a drainpipe to download it. Once upon a time Patrick and I would have been seeking permission to digitise and disseminate it but now that's a labour of love that must be left to others. I shall just knock the rust off my mind's ear and delight in reading it.]

I've got both editions of the VS, the "suppressed" 190pp with Ye Mighty Gods of Ancient Rome love duet for Pilate and his wife, and the 169pp "expurgated" version. I prefer the former!


Well, naturally! Who wouldn't want 21 pages more SC-T?! I don't have either VS in physical form although I dowloaded the one that's at IMSLP (which is the unexpurgated version, fortunately). As the full score they've uploaded is dated 1903, I'm hoping that it's the full version too, although it's notated on the front with Novello's London address and so if we're unlucky, it might be the pruned version. We'll see when it's cleared copyright.
