Indeed, the nine movements of the litany are a study in contrast, a celebration of Mozart's ability to blend the old, "strict" style with free-form operatic composition. "For whom did Mozart write such things?" Alfred Einstein* asks, rhetorically. "We have no choice but to imagine that in the audience for such a litany, devoutness was mixed with connoisseurship; it was a concert, given on a liturgical pretext."
