Czech Lubomír Mátl - Česká Mše Vánoční Mass was composed in a frame of traditional Latin mass with parts KyrieGloria etc. Despite this, the work has a rather pastoral character with emphasis on a Czech description of the nativity in a Czech setting. During the centuries, the composition became the most popular Christmas mass in Czech countries and one of the musical symbols of Czech Christmas.
Some parts of the composition were performed separately as pastorales and the text gradually adapted with changes in the Czech language. Though Ryba created more than 1, compositions, Czech Christmas Mass remains one of the few works performed regularly to date. The original key of the composition was A majorhowever, it was later transposed and arranged in various ways.
Today the transposition in G major a tone lower is the most commonly used version. The mass contains characteristic short melodic motifs inspired by the folk music, supported by colorful rhythms. Because of its folk character and simplicity, it has been excluded from the Catholic liturgy. However, it still remains connected with the celebration of traditional Czech Christmas. The original instrumentation of the work was 4 solichoirorganflute2 clarinets2 hornsclarion klarina ; trumpet2 violinsviolaviolon- double bass and timpani.
