Communion Motet    Ave verum corpus    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

In the last few months of his life, Mozart was involved in the composition of the Magic Flute and La Clemenza di Tito. These two very different works were to dominate his last year until embarking upon the unfinished Requiem. On June 17 of 1791, his last year, Mozart took a break to compose the profound and heavenly Ave verum corpus for chorus and strings. This amazing little work is in his most ethereal last manner. Hushed, never going above the softest dynamics, it gives us a picture of an otherworldly peace unlike almost no other work. (Notes courtesy Craig Smith)

Voluntary     Chorale: Gelobt sei Gott im hoechsten Thron     Ernst Pepping (1901-1981)
