Carus-Verlag was founded in 1972 with the aim of publishing editions of previously unpublished works of sacred choral music, works out of print or works in older editions which did not conform to the standards of modern editorial practice. In pursuing its goal of continually expanding the repertoire available to choirs, Carus has become a leading publisher of sacred music worldwide. The catalog contains more than 25.000 editions.
Carus – Urtext
The aim of Carus Urtext editions is to provide a reliable music text, cleansed of the additions of later centuries. The editions are developed according to current musicological standards, taking into account all of the known sources, with the objective of most closely realizing the composer’s intention. The foreword offers performers important information concerning the work and its genesis as well as suggestions for performance.
Carus Bach vocal Urtext series
Since its founding the editions of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach have played an important role at Carus. With the Bach vocal project the publication of Bach’s sacred music will be completed by the anniversary of the Reformation in 2017.
Complete Editions of European composers
One very important area is the supervision of historicalcritical complete editions; these are developed in collaboration with renowned edition institutes such as the Bach-Archiv Leipzig, the Max-Reger-Institut, the
Heinrich-Schütz Archiv Dresden and the Centro Studi Giacomo Puccini in Lucca. Among others, the complete edition of works by Josef Gabriel
Rheinberger has contributed significantly to the fact that his music can now be heard again around the world today.
Carus editions are distinguished by the excellent quality of their music engraving, as well as by their attractive presentation. Over 600 vocal scores for works in all genres are available in reliable editions based on Urtext, including playable keyboard accompaniments and indications of instrumentation. Thanks to their clear layout, their precise printing and
practical binding, the Carus vocal scores are recognized worldwide as leading editions of sacred choral repertoire.
