Mozart’s Music for Today

American Roman Catholics observe the Feast of Corpus Christi today.  In June 1791, just six months before his death, Mozart wrote a motet for this feast.  It is among the most exquisite and beautiful pieces of music ever written, no less moving and powerful because it is less than four minutes long.  A fine recording of Ave Verum Corpus may be heard here.  Enjoy.
