Mozart

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

 

Here are some favorites out of the huge body of music Mozart wrote for the church. The Laudate Pueri from his Dominican Vespers, K. 321 is written as a canon. Charles Bruffy conducts the Kansas City Chorale. Barbara Bonney sings the effervescent Alleluia from the Exsultate, Jubilate of 1773, and we finish with the simple, heartfelt Ave Verum Corpus, one of Mozart's last works, sung by the Arnold Schoenberg Choir. Nicholas Harnoncourt conducts the Concentus Musicus of Vienna.
