Miserere - Allegri

 Gregorio Allegri's 1638 setting of the Miserere is perhaps the most recognized piece of polyphony in the world. Its solemn tone and stunning High Cs have moved listeners for generations. However, these High Cs--perhaps the most effective part of the piece--are the result of a happy accident. In 1831 composer Felix Mendelssohn, for some unknown reason, transcribed the Allegri Miserere a fourth higher than the original pitch. This caused the ornamented G in the first score to become a High C instead.  In 1880, it was this higher version that was printed in the first edition of "Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians." In 1932 Robert Haas published a score for the work, using the higher version from "Groves" as his source. We will never know exactly what caused Mendelssohn to raise the pitch so extremely, but we all (except perhaps the soprano tasked with singing the Cs) thank him.
