‘Mozart Grosse Messe in c-moll - Belgian National Orchestra’

When Mozart married Constanze in 1782, he again embarked on the composition of a religious work: a great mass in C minor. He was to perform this in Salzburg on presenting Constanze to his family. Constanze was also to perform the soprano solo in the aria Et incarnates est. For unknown reasons Mozart never completed the mass, although some sections of it were performed in Salzburg. Was this due to the reforms in church music production? Or did Mozart lose his motivation following the death of his first son? Despite the fragmentary nature of the score, Mozart’s Great Mass remains one of the greatest masses ever written.
