For this Sunday...

...sorry, more music, but it seems the appropriate sort to mark a Resurrection. Back when I had some spare time - oh, say, in the early to late 90's - I was in a choir here in Orangelando and we sang this Gloria many times, and the whole mass on Christmas Eve. It's Mozart's Mass in C Major, the Coronation Mass, and this is my favorite of all his Glorias. Performed by the London Symphony, Sir Colin Davis conducting, the John Alldis choir supplying the voices. Included on the 2 disc CD are the Requiem and the Great Mass in C minor.

The music is here.

Beautiful. I haven't listened to a whole lot of Mozart in my life. I took the opportunity to play this somewhat loudly while most members of the family were away. :-)

Excellent! That's how it should be played.
