The Messe no. 6 aux cathedrales by Charles Gounod (1818-1893) is a reworking of the Messe no. 3 aux communautes religieuses (for three equal voices) by the composer himself. The work contains no setting of the Benedictus, but instead, in the French tradition, an "O salutaris hostia" and a "Domine Salvam". Its easily comprehensible musical language gives the mass a light, catchy character. Simple musical means are used formatively, shaping the distinctive characteristics of the individual movements. The organ supports the choral parts, which only sing unaccompanied in a few places. "A colorful, entertaining piece of expressive-Romantic choral music, which audiences and performers alike will enjoy" (Wurttembergische Blatter fur Kirchenmusik 2/1992). Score available separately - see item CA.4063700.
