Program Notes
With the Gratias, we return again to a more serious tone with choral forces. The text is very short, and so is the music – in fact, what we have here is an important subcategory of Mozartian mass movements: a through-composed, modulating link between two larger movements. It's nice to have a break from symmetry every once in a while, and this prosaic movement does exactly that.
