Lang on front cover and title page. All edges gilt. Cloth. Conductor B.J. Lang's copy. He conducted this work at The Cecilia in Boston March 31, 1892 (copy of program laid in). Manuscript notations sporatically throughout, presumably in his hand. "Ever since its founding in 1876, The Boston Cecilia has enjoyed a history remarkable for its many fine conductors. The great B.J. Lang in his 33 years of leadership established a pattern of introducing new works to Boston audiences alongside standard repertoire. Many of those unknown pieces joined the canon-the Bach Mass in B Minor and Brahms Requiem, to name but two. Among his novel ideas and new pieces now forgotten, Lang had the audacity to program Bach for a Victorian audience whose taste, ironically, found "antique" music decidedly old-fashioned. The Cecilia, as it was then known, has long held a central place in the performing arts in this city. Antonin Dvo ák led the chorus in Boston's first performance of his Requiem in 1892. It premiered Beethoven's Missa Solemnis here and later sang it under Max Fiedler at the dedication of Symphony Hall in 1900. Commissioned by countryman Serge Koussevitsky, Igor Stravinsky composed his Symphony of Psalms for the Boston Symphony when Cecilia in 1930 sang the choral part in the American premiere, six days after its world debut in Switzerland. During those years Arthur Fiedler brought Cecilia through the Depression and World War II as the official chorus of the Boston Symphony. Under Koussevitzy, this was a period of prominence if not independence." (website of Boston Cecelia).
