Our encodings of larger works (operas, oratorios, and serenatas)
are generally newly edited by leading specialists in the field.
Many of these editions require the written consent of the editors
Where variants have been encoded, as for example in the case of Messiah, it has sometimes been necessary to add even more subscripts or, alternatively, even more movement numbers to accommodate varying numbers of movements from one version to another.
Neither numbering system deals with another variable in Handel's music--his frequent practice of changing vocal registration (for example from soprano to tenor or vice versa). For the user of score matierial, this can easily be accommodated by adding or substracting the numeral 8 under the treble clef sign.
