Messe Solennelle (orchestra), first publication.

Mixed choir (SATB) and orchestra (with or without organ)

First edition for the version for mixed choir (SATB) and orchestra of the "Messe Solennelle" composed by Jean Langlais in 1949. This score written by Jean Langlais immediately after the well known version for choir and 1 or 2 organs has never been published.

It has been done now, in 2015, and the "éditions de la Schola Cantorum" in Switzerland made a very precise work according to the original manuscript composed by Jean Langlais 66 years ago.

Marie-Louise Langlais made possible a version which includes the organ in the orchestra, giving the impression of a dialogue which exists in the original score for SATB choirs and 2 organs.
