Its musical variety is key to the appeal of the Missa brevis. From a fughetta in the Kyrie to the quartal harmonies of the Gloria with its dialog between soloists and chorus to the rhythmically striking passages in the Sanctus there is everything an experienced choir could wish for. The final Agnus Dei gloriously presents both soloists and the choir with a compelling and dramatic call for peace. Festivly supported by the brass and the organ, the Missa brevis is an exciting and rewarding piece for the choral repertoire.
