Mozart wrote the "Vesperae Solennes de Confessore" in Salzburg when he was 24 years old, shortly after his mother had died in Paris. As with several other compositions from this period, he used this piece to work through his grief, especially apparent in the "Laudate Dominum,” the fifth part of the Vesper. However, the Vesperae Solennes de Confessore doesn’t just stay in this intimate, inspired register but instead reveals a diverse character. In the final chorus, a brilliant "Magnificat," the timpani and trumpets ring out, thereby giving the work its name "Solennes”.
