Mozart sets the Regina Angelorum with the ebullience of an opera finale. In the first place, professional musicians there are not held in much consideration; and , second, one hears nothing, there is no theater, no opera, and even if they really wanted one, who is there to sing?

- Mass in C major, K.317 (Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus);
Young Mozart was very familiar with the castrato voice, which sang the heroic leading roles in the serious opera opera seria of the type he was composing for Milan. We have no castrati , and we shall never have them, because they insist on being handsomely paid; and generosity is not one of our faults.
Archbishop Hieronymus von Colloredo. No sacred work of Mozart better typifies the liturgical extravagance abhorred by Archbishop Colloredo than this three-movement solo motet with connecting recitatives. But it was written for Milan—beyond his jurisdiction—where Mozart had been commissioned by the Royal Ducal Theater to write Lucio Silla, in which Rauzzini was singing the role of Cecilio.
Just as leading operatic characters received a variety of arias to exploit both their technique and expressivity, the second movement is written in the sensitive Empfindsamer style. A lyrical melody inflected with expressive chromaticism soars over a gently throbbing bass, with two-note sigh figures in the strings depicting the sighing heart unde suspirat cor consoled by the Virgin.
Sonata form A-B-A is used in the first two movements, while the final Alleluia begins with a tuneful melody recurring in the pattern A-B-A-C-A, as the rondo-finale of a concerto. Those which he started in Vienna after leaving the employ of Archbishop Colloredo remained incomplete. Although his C-minor Mass and Requiem are indisputably his finest achievements in sacred music, both were left unfinished—the former for unknown reasons, and the latter, interrupted at first by the commission of the opera La clemenza di Tito for the coronation of Emperor Leopold II in Prague, and thereafter by his untimely death in It is appropriately grand, with pairs of oboes, horns, trumpet, timpani, and three trombones doubling the alto, tenor, bass parts of the chorus.
It is a masterpiece of concise and vigorous expression.
The Mannheimers were noted not only for their virtuoso wind players, but for emphatic dynamic contrasts of forte and piano. Its crescendos were said to cause the audience to rise up in their seats. Mozart takes advantage of symmetries in the text to create variants of sonata form. The music of Gloria in excelsis is recapitulated in Quoniam tu solus , and the bustling Credo in unum Deum returns as Et resurrexit, framing a muted episode in minor that focuses the central mystery of faith, Et incarnatus est.
The composer creates an even larger symmetry when he concludes the movement Dona nobis pacem with the music of the opening Kyrie , but this time sung on the double. This certainly creates a theatrical finale, but also raises the possibility that His Excellency the Archbishop was looking at his watch. Share This. All Rights Reserved.
