Quick Overview

According to statements by the composer, the Missa sacra is suitable for both “worship services, as well as for concerts,” and at the same time it is “not difficult to perform.” The expressive harmonies, precise use of counterpoint and its concise themes show that the Missa sacra is a highly romantic work which belongs among the great masterpieces of 19th century sacred music. Following a performance in 1861 Clara Schumann wrote to Johannes Brahms: “The Kyrie is deeply moving, and as if cast from one mold; in the Sanctus individual movements had such a wonderful sonorous effect that chills ran down my spine.” For the present edition Zsigmond Szathmáry has made a new arrangement for organ of the original orchestra accompaniment.
