Mozart and the Church. It's a little like saying, "kids, eat your spinach." Much fuss has been made over how much Mozart hated Salzburg and having to write mostly church music. Much of his church music is fairly ordinary. But the music this hour is NOT ordinary. We begin with the Regina Coeli, K. 276, a performance by the Kansas City Chorale. And we follow it up with organist Daniel Chorzempa and the German Bach Soloists playing Mozart's Church Sonata in C Major, K. 328.
