The Mass in D Major is the only one of Dvořák’s several masses that still exists.  In 1887, Josef Hlávka, an artistic patron, architect, and friend of Dvořák’s and founder of the Czech Academy of Sciences and Art, commissioned the piece for the consecration of a private chapel at his country estate, Lužany Castle, in southwest Bohemia.  The consecration took place on September 11, 1887.  Dvořák himself conducted; the two female parts were sung by Hlávka’s wife, Zdeňka (soprano), and Dvořák’s wife, Anna (alto), accompanied by organist Josef Klička and the Hlahol Choir of Plzeň (Pilsen).
