    The Missa pastoralis in C, published here for the first time, dates from about 1808. It belongs to a cycle of sacred pieces, a Cursus sacro-harmonicus, which Ryba planned as Ordinarium and Proprium settings for all the Sundays and feast days of the church year. The Missa pastoralis in C is a pastoral Mass for the matutinal service at Christmas. As in the Missa Pastoralis in B-flat, in this Mass Ryba makes use of concertante instruments: trumpet and a bassoon, an instrument seldom employed solistically in a Mass, but which gives this work a unique character.
