Like his famous Requiem, Mozart’s unfinished Great Mass in C minor gave rise to much speculation. The work remained unfinished, yet the tags ‘great’ and ‘monumental’ are apt – thanks to its size, cast and artistic demands it is one of the most impressive works of spiritual music of all time. With the performance of this magnificent piece in the Church of Saint Simon and Saint Jude we shall mark the 260th anniversary of Mozart’s birth. Let’s not forget that during his stays in Prague the composer used to play the organ in this very same church!
