*#1 Albrecht Mayer – Mozart: Ave verum corpus, K.618 (Arr. Spindler for English Horn, Strings and Organ) Playlist Mix The Best of Elgar

One of the project’s most joyful moments came courtesy of Ave verum corpus, a short motet written for the feast of Corpus Christi in June 1791 just six months before its composer’s death. “Ave verum corpus is one of Mozart’s most famous pieces,” Mayer observes. “I’ve known it for forty-eight years, since I sang it with the Bamberger Symphoniker when I was a second soprano with the Bamberger Domchor, the boys’ choir of Bamberg Cathedral. It’s not even four minutes long but it’s full of the most exquisite lines. In Matthias Spindler’s arrangement for English horn, strings and organ, we have one of the most soothing of all tunes. It’s like a little night music, sung by the baritone voice of the English horn.”
