  • Schubert’s sacred music is a rarity in concert halls, an inexplicable fact given the quality and quantity of the works he produced in this genre: almost four dozen compositions including six Masses. Among all his sacred or secular works, Mass No. 5 was the one he was most devoted to, and he wrote it over a period of three years. A perfect fusion between the tradition of sacred music and the incredible melodic inventiveness of Schubert, so evident in his famous lieders and piano pieces, Mass No. 5 is a treasure to be discovered urgently. Whether you are hearing it for the first time or listening to it again, it always reveals something new.
