To a greater extent than almost any others, Mozart's Masses combine a very high degree of artistic accomplishment and tonal beauty with fulfilment of the demands made by the Liturgy. Even the textually expansive movements "Gloria" and "Credo" are, in most of Mozart's Masses, short enough to meet the requirements of a festive service, today as in his time. The choral parts are not too difficult for well-trained amateur singers.
