Johann Baptist Wanhal

Missa in C Nokki 02

Wanhal ?
Nokki 02
Weinmann deest

Authenticity: Possibly Authentic

This work survives in only one copy. It is a Kyrie-Gloria mass, of which only one other, Nokki 32, is attributed to him. Such Kyrie-Gloria masses were not uncommon in Bohemia and Moravia, and Wanhal may well have been commissioned for such works; alternatively this may have been a full work where only the Kyrie and Gloria have survived. Stylistically the attribution in plausible, but no more. The setting of Qui sedes as a separate movement is unique amongst the masses attributed to him. Whilst the use of both flues and oboes is suspect, this may well have been an experiment or a rescoring.
