If, during his lifetime, Leopold Mozart was highly regarded as composer of programmatic instrumental music, it is his church music which has proven to comprise the more important part of his opus. This is also especially true for the influence which this music had on the sacred compositions of his son Wolfgang Amadeus. In the Missa in A (ca.1765), in the manner of the times, Leopold Mozart blends baroque and gallant stylistic elements and through formal structure and an expressive musical language he gives the Credo a special importance.
