Vienna Boys Choir at Hofmusikkapelle

Every Sunday from mid-September to the end of June, a service takes place at 9:15 am in the Hofburgkapelle. It continues a tradition of more than 500 years, which began in the time of the Habsburg rulers. Unique to this day is the musical design of these fairs. The Vienna Hofmusikkapelle ensemble consists of the Vienna Boys' Choir, the men's choir of the Vienna State Opera and members of the Vienna Philharmonic. They perform with the organist in the gallery up on the back wall of the Hofburgkapelle. The final motet is sung by the Vienna Boys Choir after the mass in front of the high altar.

The changing parts of the Mass, the so-called Proprium, are performed by the Choralschola of the Vienna Hofburgkapelle, which is made up of former Vienna Boys' Choir. The regular Masses, the Ordinarium (Kyrie, Gloria, Creed, Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus), are heard in important Mass settings by, inter alia, Claudio Monteverdi, Heinrich Isaac, Jacobus Gallus, Hans Leo Hassler, Antonio Salieri, Joseph and Michael Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert, who himself was a court singers boy, or Anton Bruckner, who was one of the major organists of the Hofburgkapelle.
