The “Ave verum Corpus” motet for 4 vocal parts, orchestra and organ, KV 618, was written by W. A. Mozart on June 17th, 1791, just half a year before his death, in Baden bei Wien probably for his friend Anton Stoll, who was the local Regens chori. The touching sincerity of this church song has assured it a firm position within the liturgy of the Catholic church up until the present day. With 46 beats the piece lasts just a few minutes. It has been described as the “crystallization of classic simplicity and greatness”. 

The four-page autograph of the score came to what was then known as the “Kaiserlich Königliche Hofbibliothek” library in Vienna via Ludwig Ritter von Köchel in 1877. This Mozart autograph is today regarded as a particular treasure of the music collection of the Austrian National Library.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
