Herbert von Karajan conducts Mozart's Coronation Mass and Ave Verum Corpus Wiener Philharmoniker

About

Saturday, June 29, 1985: Herbert von Karajan and the Wiener Philharmoniker perform Mozart’s Coronation Mass with four of the greatest singers of the decade as part of a mass celebrated by Pope Jean Paul II at the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Ten thousand cardinals, bishops, diplomats from the world over, Italian political figures, and important personalities from the cultural scene are present. Two years earlier in during the pope's visit to Austria, it was Karajan himself who suggested performing Mozart's work in a religious service to the great religious leader.
