This mass was written in 1828 in the final months of Schubert's life. Like many of his late works, such as the C Major Symphony or Die Winterreise, Schubert never heard the Mass himself. The premiere, given by his brother Ferdinand in October 1829, met with great acclaim from the audience, and further performances soon followed. One contemporary reviewer called Schubert's final Mass "surely one of his most profound and perfect creations." Our new urtext edition is based on the autograph score.
