Mass in D Major;  Choral and Organ Works   March 4, 2018 

By Antonin Dvořák; Herbert Howells

Dvorak’s Mass in D major, also called The Luzany Mass, was composed at the behest of Josef Hlavka, who was a prominent architect and patron of the arts.  Hlavka, a friend of Dvorak’s who later founded the Czech Academy of Sciences, had a chapel built at his summer residence, in the town of Luzany in Western Bohemia. He approached Dvorak to compose a new mass for the chapel’s consecration in 1968, and the resulting composition was completed within three months. Featured soloists to be posted soon.
