Sheet music page of choral work by Sandström.

Sandström’s 1980 choral work En ny himmel och en ny jord. A new edition prepared for Gehrmans Musikförlag.

Sven-David Sandström (1942–2019) was a well-known Swedish composer. Among his works are operas, oratorios, choral music, and orchestral pieces.

The task

For a new edition of En ny himmel och en ny jord/A New Heaven and a New Earth (1980), our task was to engrave a new score and add German lyrics instead of the original Swedish and English.

Engraving and editing

We engraved this piece from scratch in Sibelius, as the source was only available as a manuscript. The score includes graphic notation that we designed manually.

Detail showing the score optimized for new German lyrics with changed extenders, note values, and slurs.

The German text differs from the Swedish and English versions regarding hyphens and extenders, and we adjusted the note values and slurs to match.

The music font is Opus, and the text was set in Palatino Linotype and Berling Nova Sans Pro.
