'Howard joue tout cela avec beaucoup de raffinement et un vrai sens du châtoiement sonore. De belles découvertes' (Répertoire, France)

Ave verum corpus de Mozart, S461a
1791; K618
circa 1861

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
This little Mozart transcription is at one remove from the original Ave verum corpus motet – which also dates from the last year of Mozart’s life. Liszt had already incorporated it into a work variously for piano, piano duet, organ or orchestra entitled A la chapelle Sixtine and this version merely adds a cadence to an excerpt from that work. (Liszt did make a more literal version of Mozart’s motet – for organ, S674a.)
