Schubert did not have it easy with the Mass in A flat major, a work which he revisited again and again over a long period. He responded to the obvious challenge of combining artistic aspirations with liturgical functionality by employing a concise interweaving of the choir and vocal soloists, and avoiding the usual formulae found in mass settings. Although in Schubert’s own revision many artistic details and tonal differentiations were sacrificed, the mass still presents a musical challenge for all performers, both singers and instrumentalists.
