Benedictus und Offertorium aus der ungarischen Krönungsmesse, S501

Benedictus  [5'16]
Offertorium  [4'05]

The Benedictus and Offertorium are from the once-popular Hungarian Coronation Mass and exist in a variety of transcribed versions: for piano, for organ, for violin and piano, for violin and organ, and for piano duet. The Benedictus was also published in a version for violin and orchestra. Here Liszt incorporated Hungarian musical inflections into a setting of the ordinary, and the resulting Mass is well overdue for revival.
