Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: His name alone evokes musical thoughts. There's Mozart, the legend and mythical personality; Mozart, the child prodigy: the musical genius. Mozart, the prodigious talent with an eye on the divine. A truly revolutionary character in musical history. And while you can still catch the namesake festival until August 25, it's mostly Mozart today on the Choral Mix.

Some highlights include our favorite movements from Mozart’s Solemn Vespers, a work not as well known as his Requiem, but still very enriching.

We'll also hear the Kyrie and Gloria from Mozart’s Mass in C minor. Had Mozart completed his Mass, it may have competed with J.S. Bach's Mass in B Minor as the epitome of classical masses. This version is sung by the Winchester Cathedral Choir and the Winchester College Quiristers alongside the Academy of Ancient Music. The Winchester College Choristers have had a longstanding choral tradition for nearly six-hundred years. 

We're showcasing Mozart's sacred works, pieces you'll hear in both church and concert hall, always defying limitations!
