Some background information: This solemn mass was meant to be sung for the installation of Archduke Rudolph, Beethoven's patron, in 1819. The precision by which Beethoven had taken on this task, resulted in the completion of the mass only by 1823. It received much praise after its first performance in St. Petersburg from Prince Galitzin. He described it as 'masterly harmony' and 'moving melody'. Guided by the melody, Beethoven created music that tests the limits in range, vocal dexterity and stamina of all voices. A piece of music of the highest standing, in every meaning of the word
