Mass No. 10, Missa Brevis No. 5 in C Major “Spatzenmesse” (Sparrow Mass), K 220 (1776) The Spatzenmesse (Sparrow Mass) was composed in Salzburg by W. A. Mozart (b.1756Salzburg; d.Vienna1791) in 1776. The Mass is sometimes termed a Missa brevis et solemnis, because it is short and simple in structure as a Missa brevis, but festively scored like a Missa solemnis with brass and timpani in addition to soloists, strings and organ.

Mass No. 17 in C Major “Missa Solemnis”, K 337 (1780)   While seldom heard in concert halls and rarely recorded, this Mass composed in 1780 by W.A. Mozart (b.Salzburg1756: d.Vienna1791) nonetheless offers lovely, joyful music appropriate for liturgical use. Although titled, Missa Solemnis, its succinctness would qualify it as a missa brevis. The Credo, which lasts less than six minutes, is the second Credo Mozart composed for this Mass. He completed about two-thirds of the first Credo, up to…

Mass No. 7 in C Major “Missa in honorem Sanctissimae Trinitatis” (Trinitatis Mass), K 167 (1773)   W.A. Mozart (b.Salzburg1756; d.Vienna1791) composed the Missa in honorem Sanctissimae Trinitatis (K. 167) at age 17. He dated it June 1773 and possibly intended it for Trinity Sunday, which occurred on June 6 of that year. However, British musicologist, Stanley Sadie (193-2005), as well American musicologist Neal Zaslaw (1939- ), both suggested that Mozart composed this Mass for Salzburg’s beautiful Dreifaltigkeitskirche (Trinity Church)…

Mass No. 2 in G Major, D 167 (1815) With this Mass composed by Franz Schubert (b Vienna 1797; d.Vienna 1828) in 1815, we experience his gift for lyric beauty and simplicity.  Although he was only 18 years old, this was his second Mass and his 167th musical composition, as cataloged by musicologist Otto Deutsch.  By the time of his death at age 31, Schubert had written at least 998 works, including more than 600 songs.  Franz Schubert was an accomplished…
