Mozart - Ave Verum Corpus - Brass QuintetCherry Classics
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus – Ave Verum Corpus for Brass Quintet.
Dated within the last six months of the composer's life, the Ave Verum Corpus, K. 168 is a profound example of the unrivaled beauty, elegance and simplicity of Mozart's style. It is a stand-alone choral work based on a sacred Latin text, probably written for a Corpus Christi service in Baden, near Vienna. Often cited as one of Mozart's sublimity inspired the following remarks from Albert Einstein: the perfection of modulation and part-writing, lightly introducing polyphony as a final intensification, (is) no longer perceived. Here...ecclesiastical and personal elements flow together. The problem of style is solved.
Originally scored for four-part chorus (SATB), organ and strings, this arrangement preserves the original key and markings; the only additions are the marking in the solo voice and the suggested metronome marking of q=80.
