Exactly as I had expected from the product. Clear precise printing (I have other Novello scores so knew the format). Disappointed with delivery advice ~ it arrived much earlier than I had been advised so I had hired a copy in between times. Never mind ~ on the bookshelf for the next occasion (if it happens!)
The actual score is fine but pages 87 -154 are taken up with another version which adds greatly to the weight and size and is not likely to be used by the ordinary choral singer so I do not give this 5 stars.
In German. Bulky as contains two versions of the score, one after the other; the Sussmayer and an updated version by Duncan Druce. This may be useful though if I have to sing it again for a different conductor with a different preference. Excellent, clear with interesting foreword and history of the score.
