programme:

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:
Ave verum Corpus K. 618
Exsultate, jubilate K. 165
Coronation Mass K. 317

As Alfred Einstein, Mozart’s monographer, aptly observed, the catholic quality of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s church music consists in its humanism, straightforwardness, and in appealing to the hearts of those pious and trustful. Mozart was full of piousness himself, the author concludes, even though always “beautifully dressed.” And, in paying tribute to the opulent style, he never forgot about expression. It is enough to listen to his three masterpieces.

Exuberant and Emotional
Motet Exsultate, jubilate (Exult, rejoice), KV 165, is a miniature concerto of sorts for soprano voice with the accompaniment of strings, oboes, horns and organ. The music is characterized by virtuoso splendour and stylistic refinement. Mozart composed the piece in Milan, for the outstanding Roman castrate Venanzio Rauzzini, during his stay in Italy in 1773. As he would boast to his father, the work resulted from his many peregrinations: he could indeed adopt and creatively process any music style, including that of the Italian bel canto.

With Spiritual Ardour
Motet Ave verum corpus (Hail, True Body), KV 618, was composed in 1791, most probably on the occasion of the feast of Corpus Christi, and it was written for Anton Stoll, a teacher and choirmaster at the Church of St. Stephan in Baden bei Wien. Composed in the manner of “secondary simplicity,” it represents seraphic beauty. In an autograph under the initial Adagio, Mozart added the phrase sotto voce… As in songs, important matters are brought up in whispers…

Marian Worship
In March 1779, Mozart composed his Mass (KV 317) for a quartet of soloists, mixed choir, orchestra and organ, known as the Coronation Mass. Initially, it was believed that he had written it for remembrance celebration of the image of Our Lady of Maria Plain from the shrine outside Salzburg, but today it is believed that the missa brevis was composed to celebrate Easter. Subtlety meets quasi-symphonic contrasts in the work, and the soprano solo from Agnus Dei anticipates Countess’s aria from The Marriage of Figaro. After all, opera always came first for Mozart…

***
In his letter to artists (1999), John Paul II wrote about his search for new epiphanies of beauty. He emphasized: “In producing a work, artists express themselves to the point where their work becomes a unique disclosure of their own being, of what they are and of how they are what they are.” He also observed that “beauty is a key to the mystery and a call to transcendence.” It is a glorious message for us. The here and now.
