The Mass no. 2 in G major by Franz Schubert, D 167, was composed in 1815.

This is the best known of the three "shorter" mass compositions which Schubertcomposed between the more elaborate first and fifth masses. In addition, the laterDeutsche Messe or German Mass, D 872,and the ultimate sixth mass would be longer.

The mass no. 2, commonly referred to as "Schubert's Mass in G," was composed in lessthan a week (March 2 to 7, 1815), the year after his first mass had been successfullyperformed in Schubert's home parish.The second mass was originally more modestlyscored than the first, requiring only a string orchestra and organ in addition to thesoloists and choir. However, in the 1980s a set of parts for the mass were discovered atKlosterneuburg which are dated later than Schubert's full score.They not only includeminor changes throughout the work, which would apparently represent Schubert's"final" intentions,they also include trumpet and timpani parts.

Apart from some passages for the soprano soloist, the solistic interventions are verymodest. Characteristically for Schubert, he is more interested in an overall devotionalmood of a religious composition than in individualistic romantic text-expression.

In this edition for women's voices, I use Schubert's first version for strings and organwhich fits excellently to the sound of the women's choir.
