Beethoven, Ludwig van

Beethoven, Ludwig van
(baptized 17 December 1770, Bonn – 26 March 1827, Vienna)
   Renowned chiefly for his supreme mastery of instrumental genres—symphony, concerto, sonata, and string quartet—Beethoven only composed four explicitly sacred works: the oratorio Christus am Oelberge ("Christ on the Mount of Olives," 1803), the Mass in C major (1807), a wedding song, and the massive Missa Solemnis in D major (1819–1823). The two masses are often heard in concert, very rarely in liturgy.
