Composed

Composed by Francesco Durante (1684-1855)
Copied by J.S. Bach during the second half of 1727. J.S. Bach changed the structuring of the Kyrie part of his source. He retained only Kyrie I, composed a new filigree duet duet for the Christe (BWV 242), and employed the music from the beginning of the Gloria for the Kyrie II. In the Gloria simple plainsong intonation takes the place of the first section, and it is not until the words "Et in terra pax" that Durante's music is resumed.
Performed by J.S. Bach in Leipzig, 1727-1731
