Anton Bruckner (1824-1896), whose 200th birthday will be celebrated in 2024, is known today primarily for his powerful, magnificent symphonies. However, it should not be forgotten that the Austrian master's first compositional experiences were in the genre of sacred music. Mass No. 1 in D minor can be regarded as a worthy musical essay that fits in with the sacred works of Haydn, Mozart and Schubert: It shares a certain stylistic composure with the first, the tonality of the Requiem with the second and the search for a balance between symphony, solo voices and choir with the third.
These aspects certainly did not go unnoticed at the premiere in Linz Cathedral on 20 November 1864: the work was very well received and was one of St. Florian's most important successes.
