The Krönungsmesse (German for Coronation Mass) (Mass No. 15 in C major, KV 317; sometimes Mass No. 16), composed in 1779, is one of the most popular of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart‘s 17 extant settings of the Ordinary of the Mass.

I first heard this sublime music at my church, Sr. Joseph Cathedral in Bucharest (Ro. Catedrala Sfantul Iosif din Bucuresti), in the interpretation of the elite of Romanian musicians.
