I did it!! I finally found the music that annoys my surroundings even more than GothicElectro, Dubstep, or Speedcore… :-) Not a bad accomplishment for a 17th century Austrian composer, with a reputation for being a dull academic…! Poor Johann Joseph Fux, ok, the Habsburg Catholic court *might* not have been the gentlest, free-thinking surroundings of that period (ask it to the people who had to endure the 30 year war), but only to be remembered by a book that nobody can read (as it is written in Latin) no, that is too harsh for Johann. So I was glad to find his “Missa Corporis Christi” on youtube, nice flowing music, so easy going that you have to be in a splendid mood to endure it…
The only snag was that the uploader wanted to make a puzzle of the missa order. No clues given… So, here is my solution for this Fuxpuzzle, the right order for this work.
Hope you will enjoy it!
