Mass no. 6 in Eb, D 950, is a mass composed by Franz Schubert in 1828, commissioned by Michael Leitermayer, choirmaster of the Church of the Holy Trinity in Vienna. The premire, however, only came after Schubert's death, under the baton of his own brother Ferdinand. The work has been defined as Beethovenian in its architecture, and it is only ogical that Schubert was profundly influenced by Beethoven's death. It also displays references to Bach, Mozart, and Haydn. Another interesting aspect of the work is the consistent omission of certain passages from the text, a practice that Schubert had already introduced in order to deepen the expression or enhance on a particular aspect of meaning. The first edition of the piano score was published in 1865. The work consists of six movements, takes an hour to performer, and is scored for two tenor soloists, soprano, alto and bass soloists, SATB choir with divisi, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, violin I and II, viola, cello, and double bass.less
