mozart I

Sunday we sing our first of three Mozart missa brevis' (the one in F) this season, which I believe are from the short masses that he wrote to keep the impatient Archbishop of Salzburg happy -- get them in and out in 45 minutes or some 18th century equivalent. Which means we can sing it as part of the Sunday Eucharist worship -- with instruments and organ. Although I don't think we've ever had a 45 minute service at the 10:15 on Sunday mornings.
