Josef Gabriel Rheinberger: Mass in E flat major

Josef Gabriel Rheinberger

Mass in E flat major

Cantus Missae

op. 109, 1878

Description

According to Otto Ursprung, Cantus missae is the “most beautiful, pure vocal music of the 19th century”. This is Rheinberger’s only Mass written for double choir. It obtains its special character through the use of compositional techniques of ancient classical vocal polyphony, which are combined with functional harmony and expressive, songlike voice-leading. Rheinberger was honored for this Mass with the Gregorius Medal in 1879 by  Pope Leo XIII.


This work is now available in carus music, the choir app!
