The Mass in C Minor is a solemn mass written on the grandest scale, with the Gloria and Credo treated like a cantata in being divided into a succession of individual arias and choruses. Mozart’s interest in the works of Handel is reflected in the baroque textures of several of the choral movements. They are unlike anything in his previous sacred music written for Salzburg, and echoed in parts of the Requiem nearly a decade later. Left unfinished, it is nonetheless one of Mozart’s greatest works.
