Mozart: Great Mass in C-minor

Written to Constanze!

Mozart was 22 years old when he composed his Great Mass. There are different versions about the background for the work; one, that he wrote it in gratitude that his fiancee Constanze survived a serious illness, and another that it was composed in joy because they were getting married. Constanze sang at the premiere in Salzburg.
