Sung Eucharist at the Imperial Chapel
The Chapel Imperial will perform Missa brevis in C, K.259 by W.A. Mozart, known as "organ solo mass". Conductor Mirjam Schmidt looks forward to Sunday, describing Mozart's moving setting as "almost microsccopic: Mozart manages to interpret the text in detailed and exquisite musical images and motives." She adds, "It is fascinating to know that the mass ordinary is almost 2000 years old; it has been set to music countless times, and it is today more pertinent than ever, in particular the final 'Dona nobis pacem', Lord, grant us peace."
