Einem Wunder auf der Spur: Die Mozarts und das Misererevon Gregorio Allegri
Keywords:Wolfgang Amadé Mozart, Gregorio Allegri, Miserere, Sistine Chapel
AbstractThe notation from memory of Gregorio Allegri’s Misererewas made by Wolfgang Amadé Mozart during his stay in Rome in 1770. The notation – about which the family correspondence reports – was transformed from an occurrence to an anecdote in literature about Mozart, and from an anecdote
it was built into a myth. Under scrutiny, Mozart’s achievement is not so spectacular, however new perspectives get articulated about the performance
practice of the papal chapel and the liturgical contexts of the Misererein the Sistine Chapel. These basic parameters shed a light on the impressions of the alleged “hearing miracle” that must have absorbed the 14 year old Mozart's attention.
