Ensembles which are not large enough to tackle the "great" masses by Schubert will find a suitable alternative in this compact Mass of 1816, scored for small forces. In size and length (c. 25 minutes) it is like a Missa brevis. The compositional structure is comparatively simple, but without lacking any of the typically Schubertian style in harmony or melody. The wind parts added later by the composer can be regarded as optional, as the work was originally scored for just the south German-Austrian "church trio" of 2 violins and organ. This work is now available in carus music, the choir app! Score available separately - see item CA.4065800.
