Ave Verum Corpus composed by Wolfgang Amadeus. Arranged by Dan Toomey. Brass Quintet. For 2 trumpets, horn in F, trombone, tuba. Classical Sacred. Intermediate. Full score & set of parts. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2230).
Dated within the last six months of the composer's life, the Ave Verum Corpus, K. 168 is a profound example of the unrivaled beauty, elegance and simplicity of Mozart's style. It is a stand-alone choral work based on a sacred Latin text, probably written for a Corpus Christi service in Baden, near Vienna.
Often cited as one of Mozart's most "perfect" works, it's sublimity inspired the following remarks from Albert Einstein: "the perfection of modulation and part-writing, lightly introducing polyphony as a final intensification, (is) no longer perceived. Here...ecclesiastical and personal elements flow together. The problem of style is solved."
Originally scored for four-part chorus (SATB), organ and strings, this arrangement preserves the original key and markings; the only additions are the "molto cantabile" marking in the solo voice and the suggested metronome marking of q=80.
