Missa regalis (Francisco Valls)

- Edition notes: The manuscript applies a tempo of “largo” to the first 8 bars of the Kyrie and “andante giusto” to the remainder of the work. The manuscript, however, appears to date from the late 19th Century and it seems unlikely that the tempi were applied to the work until after the composer’s death. Revisions to underlay 5/11/16

Title: Missa regalis
Composer: Francisco Valls
First published: 1740
Description: The Kyrie from the “Missa Regalis” in 5 parts composed in 1740 and dedicated to King John V of Portugal. Only the manuscript of the Kyrie of this mass is preserved in the Biblioteca de Catalunya in Barcelona. The remainder of the work is unlikely to be lost, however, since extracts from each section are quoted in “La Música en Cataluña en el siglo XVIII: Francesc Valls (1671c.-1747)" by the late Josep Pavia I Simó (1997).
