During the summer of 1774 Mozart wrote two Masses within a few weeks: the Missa brevis in F major, K. 192, and the Missa brevis in D major, K. 194. A feature common to both compositions as well as to the Dixit et Magnificat K. 193, written at about the same time, and the ""Trinitias"" Mass K. 167 of the previous year, is a more or less strongly evident tendency towards contrapuntal writing. However, while the Dixit et Magnificat and the ""Trinitas"" Mass approach the late-baroque style, in these two brevis Masses Mozart sought to combine traditional polyphonic techniques with a more modern musical language.
