This score is a reprint of an edition prepared by Alfred Einstein, most celebrated as author of the important study "Mozart: His Character, His Work" (1945). Dover's title page states that it is "edited from the autograph manuscript," but gives no further details (i.e., no critical commentary [assuming Einstein provided one], nor even the original date of publication). However, a translation of the Latin text is given immediately before the score. The score is given in a clear, legible format and should be useful to lovers of Pergolesi's masterpiece, which was an immediate hit in the 18th century (not that it did Pergolesi much good; he died the year it was completed, at age 26) and inspired scores of adaptations, including one by J.S. Bach. The music foreshadows post-Baroque trends such as Rococco ("Quae moerebat et dolebat," No. 4, is a case in point). A good and inexpensive edition.
