The second part of the book sheds new light on Mozart's "Coronation Mass" in view of its contemporary cultural and political horizon, setting this mass against the critical confrontation with religion that was already beginning at that time. Kung's approach here reveals, among other things, the possibility of a new creative understanding of the texts of the mass as interpreted by Mozart's music.
In a theological study of Mozart's music, Kung discusses the composer's Catholic background--something that, surprisingly, has hardly been treated by scholars--and reveals, among other things, the possibility of a new creative understanding of Mozart's "Coronation Mass, " as interpretated by Mozart's music. A provocative study that may even surpass Karl Barth's famous work.
