In stock and typically ships within 1 business day.


In contrast to his earlier short church works, some of which rely stylistically on baroque and classical models, in this work Schubert has discovered his own personal and romantically coloured church music idiom. Elements of this new church style include iteration which creates atmosphere, the subtle introduction of wind instrument, and sounds which die away to nothing, an effect which Schubert also employed in the "Mass in E-flat".
