Mass in Aflat major, No. 5...........Schubert
Lord, have mercy upon us, Christ, have mercy upon us, Lord, have mercy upon us.
Glory be to God on high,
and on earth, peace to men
of good will,
We praise thee, we bless thee, we adore thee
we glorify thee,
We give thanks to thee
for thy great glory,
Lord God, heavenly king,
Father almighty, Lord
the onlybegotten son, Jesus Christ,
Lord God, Lamb of God,
Son of the Father,
Who takcst away the sins of the world,
have mercy upon us,
[receive our prayer,
Who sittcth at the right hand of the
Father, have mercy on us,]
For thou only art holy,
thou only art the Lord,
I In in only arc the most high, I Jesus Christ,]
with the Holy Ghost in
the glory of God the Father. Amen.
I believe in one God,
Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
and of all things visible
and invisible,
[And] in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the onlybegotten Son of God,
[born] of the Father
before all ages,
God of God, light of light,
Very God of Very God,
begotten, not made,
of one substance with the Father,
by whom all things were made,
Who for us men
and [for] our salvation
came down from heaven.
And became incarnate
by the Holy Ghost
of the Virgin Mary
and was made man,
And was crucified also for us
under Pontius Pilate,
suffered and was buried,
And the third day he rose again,
according to the scriptures,
and ascended into heaven,
and sitteth on the right of the Father,
and he shall come again
with glory
to judge the living and the dead,
whose kingdom shall have no end.
And in the Holy Ghost,
the lord and lifegiver
who proceedeth from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son
together is adored and glorified,
who spake by the prophets,
[And in one holy catholic
and apostolic Church,!
I acknowledge one baptism
for the remission of sins,
[And I expect the resurrection]
of the dead,
and the life of the world to come,
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts,
heaven and earth are full of Thy glory. Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
Agnus Dei
Lamb of God,
who takest away the sins of the world,
have mercy upon us,
give us peace.
Concerto No. 10 in Eflat for Two Pianos and Orchestra, K. 365 ... Mozart
In this melodious and gay concerto there h no intention of making the two instruments in?dependent. The players emulate each other in the delivery of melodic passages, together or in suc?cession. Sometimes they are merely repeated, sometimes varied, but all equally distributed. Through?out, the contrast between the two solo instruments is very clear. Whether in the "mechanical gaity" of the first movement (Allegro); in the quiet beauty of the second (Andante) with its extended cantilena; or in the onward rush of merriment in the last (Rondo, allegro), where the orchestra assumes a position of major importance without giving up its concerlanle function, all is clear, precise, logical, and eternally refreshing.
Concerto in D minor for Two Pianos and Orchestra.....Poulenc
Francis Poulenc's Concerto jor Two Pianos and Orchestra ended an era in modern French music. The work was written in 1932 for the drawing room concerts of Princcsse Edmond de Polignac. A work whose charm lies in its wit, its grace, and its delicacy scarcely calls for analysis. One thing to be noted is the consistently percussive texture of the piano parts. The neoclassicism of the 1920s discovered that the piano is an instrument of percussion, and it made the most of that discovery.
