Mozart’s Solemn Vespers explores a wide variety of musical styles, from austere fugal writing to the radiant setting of the ‘Laudate Dominum’. His Mass in C minor – the most grandiose, dramatic and demanding of the composer’s choral works – juxtaposes the antique, ‘learned’ style of Handel and Bach with florid Italianate arias and ensembles that would not be out of place in one of his own operas.
