* Masterwork of a twelve-year-old

These Mozart Masses (BA 7520-BA 7522) have been arranged for solo
voices, chorus and organ
from the Urtext of the “New Mozart Edition”, thereby making them
accessible in all their beauty
to choruses and church choirs with limited financial means at their

Martin Focke has based the “concertante” organ parts on the
orchestral writing, doing full
justice to the timbre of the original. The solo parts and choruses,
of course, leave the Urtext
of the “New Mozart Edition” entirely untouched.

The name “Credo Mass” is taken from the acclamations of “Credo” that
constantly interrupt
the like-named movement. Dating from the end of 1776, this Mass is
remarkable for its
density of invention within the narrowest of confines. Further, its
instrumental accompaniment
has an almost chamber-music quality that emerges time and again into
almost symphonic
proportions. Our arrangement successfully patterns the
idiosyncrasies of the orchestral writing.
The solo and choral writing leaves the Urtext of the “New Mozart
Edition” entirely untouched.

- Self-contained version with organ instead of orchestra

- Straightforward and easy-to-play organ part

- Ideal for church services and concert performances

“Choir mso-ansi-language:EN-GB>presents a great opportunity for all
choirs to sing the great choral
repertoire without the need for an orchestra – these versions will
help to keep these
works alive and in the hearts of all lovers of choral music.”
