To read

When we think of Mozart’s religious music, the Requiem immediately springs to mind. But other masterpieces preceded it, including the Solemn Vespers for a Confessor ten years earlier, which is startlingly beautiful. Mozart uses the variety and balance of the choral and soloists’ parts to express in succession in the Catholic liturgical tradition: the power of the divine (Dixit dominus), praise for the Lord (Confitebor), and a song of jubilation (Beatus vir). A great dramatic fugue then calls for the celebration of the glory of the Lord (Laudate pueri). The final psalm (Laudate dominum) is a plea to believers to adore their Lord. The intensity and emotion which it conveys peak with the trumpets and cymbals of the Magnificat, which ring out in a final grand Amen
