|Mozart Missa Brevis in D, K. 194
Mozart’s Missa brevis in D, written in Salzburg when the composer was 18 years old, is full of many features which justify Mozart’s lasting reputation. This melodious setting of the mass is both succinct and memorable which deservedly make it a popular work worldwide.
Francis Poulenc’s Gloria, the second of his three late choral works with orchestra, was an instant success, and has been a firm favourite with performers and audience ever since its premiere in 1961. The work’s deep solemnity alongside playful humour make this work a life-affirming reflection on praise.
