WAM is normally not the first name that comes you in mind, when you think of organ music. Mozart composed these 17 Epistles in Salzburg during the period of 1772 until 1780, or when he was between the ages of 16 and 24 years old, as part of his duties as a musical servant of Archbishop Prince Colloredo of Salzburg. Used to bridge the liturgical gap between the singing of the Epistle and the singing of the Gospel at Mass, they are scored for two violins, bass instrument and organ ~ although three of them, intended for days of greater ceremony, involve a slightly larger ensemble.
Perhaps the tender age of the composer explains why these are such joyous works, brimful of uplifting melody and lighthearted exaltation. Here is music praising a benevolent God, a kindly Father. Concentrated and imaginative ~ the epitome of inspiring and elevating with their bright melodies and quick tempi ~ I can imagine how these would sound performed inside of a great cathedral, the music swirling in brilliant waves and echoing from the rafters, filling the worshippers with a satisfying taste of Mozart’s particular brand of heaven.
Heartening, moving, inspirational, stirring. A most delightful, eloquent foray into the sacred side of the supreme young genius of W. A. Mozart. Highly recommended!
