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.
