Vesperae solennes de confessore Solemn Vespers for a ConfessorK. It is scored for SATB choir and soloists, violin I, violin II, 2 trumpets3 trombones colla parte2 timpaniand basso continuo violoncellodouble bassand organwith optional bassoon obbligato. The setting was composed for liturgical use in the Salzburg Cathedral. It suggests that the work was intended for vespers held on a specific day on the liturgical calendar of saints " confessors " ; however, the saint in question has not been conclusively established.
Structurally, it is very similar to Vesperae solennes de Dominica K. The setting is divided into 6 movements; as in Miners Night Out - John McEuen - John McEuena setting of the Minor Doxology Gloria Patri concludes all movements, each recapitulating the opening themes.
The first three psalms are scored in a bold, exuberant manner, contrasting with the strict, stile antico counterpoint of the a cappella III Beatus Wir - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Krönungsmesse; Vesperae Solennes; Exsultate psalm,  and the tranquility of the fifth movement. The Magnificat sees a return to the style of the opening settings.
