A critical edition of Johann Caspar Kerll’s Missa a Tre Chori. This edition is compiled from the twenty-seven partbooks held at the Kremsmünster Benediktiner-Stift Musikarchiv in Austria. The preface includes a biographical study of the composer with an introduction to his masses. To place Missa a Tre Chori in context the characteristics of mass composition in seventeenth-century Italy, southern Germany and Austria are highlighted. The analysis of Missa a Tre Chori suggests possible dates for composition and provenance. The number of singers and instruments to each part are also discussed. The commentary at the back of this edition describes the Kremsmünster source in detail and records the editorial method. Differences between the source and this edition are recorded in the critical notes.
