Therese Grob sang the soprano solo parts. Schubert and her family were close friends, and Schubert had even had hopes of marrying Therese after a successful application for a position.
The mass in F-Major is rather opulently arranged: a choir in four parts, soloists, strings, organ and a group of winds with clarinets, oboes, horns, bassoons, trombones and trumpets. The early Mass in G-Major has always been a favourite with the experts. The key appears to have been particularly convenient for Schubert, and it is surely the most traditionally folksy one, perhaps even more so than the 'herder's key' of F Major. With the most economical means - at first only the strings and the organ were planned to be used, Schubert later added timpani and trumpets - the composer achieves extraordinary effects.
The intensity of this sacred arrangement is mainly found in its simplicity, the modest, personal experiencing of religious contemplation.
Schubert, F. - Schubert: Masses Nos. 1-6; German Mass
The Mass in G-Major was written in and was intended for a performance in the parish church of Lichtental. In contrast to the performance of the Mass in F Major, there is no proof that the performance really took place. His early compositions for masses are not quite free of Haydn's influence, whose masses Schubert himself had sung at Lichtental.
Especially Haydn's 'Harmony Mass' appears to have made a lasting impression on Schubert. There are several indications of this in the Mass in B flat major, occasionatly even direct copies in the music. The unusually portato tempo of the Kyrie might be a reference to Haydn's work, and the dotted rhythm of the first choir passage in Haydn's mass is echoed by a like passage in Schubert's music.
In autumn of , Schubert's brother Ferdinand wrote from Pressburg after having visited Hainburg, the town where Joseph Haydn had studied music with his cousin: ' The former invited me to his service taking place on the following Sunday, the fourth day of my stay. And when I asked him what mass he would be doing, he replied: a very beautiful one, by a popular and famous composer, but I just cannot remember the name right now.
And now, what mass was it?
If you had just been with me, I know you would have enjoyed this too, for it was your B flat Mass! In , he wrote in a letter to his parents that he never"forced [himself] to prayer". Nevertheless, he wrote almost 39 works of sacred music showing anything but cool distance. One sometimes has the impression as if Schubert attempted to give his personal piety and his individual faith an equally personal space in his works of sacred music.
