Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Coronation Mass | St. Stephen's Cathedral

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Coronation Mass C major, KV 317


The coronation mass is one of the great jewels in the centuries-old treasure of church music. The discussions on the occasion of which this mass was composed lasted a long time. If one repeatedly suspected that the composition was closely related to the coronation of the secular ruler, today we can assume that this mass, composed in 1779, was composed for the jubilee of the picture of the Virgin Mary in the pilgrimage church Maria Plain near Salzburg. 
Gerald Wirth, the musical director of the Vienna Boys' Choir, has worked with choir singers from all over the world in intensive workshops to perform this famous work as well as the two works by A. Bruckner in St. Stephen's Cathedral!
We look forward to this solemn, dignified evening and to your visit to St. Stephen's Cathedra
