In November of 1873 there was a gala performance of Christus in Pest (now part of Budapest). It was conducted by the famed Hans Richter. Liszt was present and gave Hans a score with a dedication. This score is now in the Hungarian National Library, and was used as a source for Christus.

Translated: “Hans Richter in thankful memory of a masterful/brilliant direction of this oratorio at the performance in Pest, Sunday November 9th 1873.”
