Vesperae solennes de Confessore, K339

author of text

To balance Haydn’s Benedictus, Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, a sweetly beautiful Rococo confection, with words from the diminutive Psalm 117. This forms part of the Solemn Vespers of 1780, one of the last pieces he wrote while employed by the Archbishop of Salzburg. Einstein describes it in his Mozart as ‘a piece completely unconcerned with anything churchly, and so enchanting and poetic in its expression that it is difficult to find its counterpart.’
