Description

For solo soprano, alto, tenor, bass, mixed choir and piano.

'To strive for the highest in art' - these are the words with which Franz Schubert announced his A flat major Mass in 1828, a work which he designated as'Missa solemnis' in his autograph. Alone the genesis of the work shows the importance which the composer placed on this work. Schubert wrote the score between 1819 and 1822, an unusually long period of time for him. He laterfundamentally revised the mass when he applied for the post of Vice Court Kapellmeister in Vienna, which he did not obtain. After this disappointment, he rejected his original intent of dedicating the mass 'to the EmperororEmpress.' Thanks to Peter Jost's 'Breitkopf Urtext' edition, Schubert's 'Missa solemnis' once again adds its luster to the publisher's catalogue: Breitkopf & Härtel published its final version in the SchubertGesamtausgabe in 1887.
