    In the 17th and 18th centuries, Salzburg, where Leopold Mozart was Assistant Court Music Director, was a center for polyphonic Offertory settings and multimovement offertory concerti, which developed into a main genre of Catholic liturgical music in the south German region.The Salzburg Cathedral seems an obvious choice, which the "solemn" orchestration with trumpets and timpani would support.
