During his years in Salzburg, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote a series of shorter mass settings, for which he drew on the models of his senior colleague Michael Haydn. Regina coeli reveals his supreme skill at writing for the solo voice. The Missa brevis in D major K194 is a work of great solemnity, employing a remarkable range of expressive contrasts, whilst the Missa brevis in B-flat major K275 is notable for its sublime lyricism and grace. The Allegro and Andante in F minor K608 is regarded as Mozart's finest work for the organ and has become one of the cornerstones of the organ repertory.
