In this clip on the theology of the Catholic Mass (YouTube Link), using the second movement from Mozart’s No. 40 as an example, I talk about how the classical symphony orchestra’s periodic phrasing is a melodic play on the ‘call and response’ dialogue found in the Catholic liturgy of the Mass. I also talk about how we need to be more intentional with our confessions during the Sursum Corda.
