‘From the heart – may it again – go to the heart!’
Beethoven’s inscription on the score of his awe-inspiring ‘Missa Solemnis’ to its dedicatee, Archduke Rudolph of Austria, Bishop of Olmütz. From the lyrical opening Kyrie, through the jubilant Gloria, the heights and depths of expression in the Credo, the entrancing violin solo in the Benedictus, to the alarming sounds of warfare and final prayer for peace of the Agnus Dei, Beethoven’s music in this mass never fails to move the listener.
