Deutsche Messe (German Mass) by Franz Schubert
Classical music (as part of a church service)
Quatuor du Temps:
Catherine Cruchet, soprano
Michèle Duvoisin, alto
Jean-Pascal Laedermann, baritone
Luigi Stähli, tenor
Was Schubert a believer? Perhaps it doesn't matter: he was at the very least enthusiastic and cared about writing music that struck a deep chord with those who listened to it. The Deutsche Messe was never allowed to be played in liturgical ceremonies during the musician’s lifetime, however. But time ruled in his favour, and this very simple composition is now sown in every heart.
