'Howard, catching the authentic tinge of hysteria, mounts swiftly upwards in an ecstasy that burns away awareness of mere notes' (Classic CD)

Benedictus und Offertorium aus der ungarischen Krönungsmesse, S501
composer
1867

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

Introduction
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.
