Buying a new Novello copy I was disappointed with the size and quality of print, especially the Latin text. This was very difficult to read and so for the performance I used my tatty old Novello copy which was marginally easier. Perhaps the publishers could consider the performance conditions? Although instrumentalists may have a light over their music stand, a singer rarely has such good lighting and a head lamp light would not look too good with an evening dress?
