Beethoven’s masterpiece is a major project for any choir, not just because of its length, but also because it contains some of the most difficult passages found in the choral repertoire. In particular the dreaded fugues of Beethoven’s late period, and the changes between extreme tempi make one thing clear: you won’t get far enough with rehearsals alone, here you really have to practice! With a good performance, however, you experience why Beethoven himself considered the Mass to be his "greatest and most successful work".
