By reason of its conciseness of style, Janáček's Latin Mass from around 1907-1908 gives the impression of being an inspired sketch, rather than a finished work. in particular, the brevitv of the Agnus Dei is surprising in effect. The work has a number of striking features: its totally individual melodic and rhythmic style, resulting from Janáček's well-known approach to word-setting; the use of rests for expressive purposes; the original use of heterophony, which here replaces traditional polyphony; and the expressively written instrumental part. A truly worthwhile piece offering reasonably proficient amateur choirs a good introduction to modern choral repertoire.
