The piece is based strongly on old-church music tradition, and particularly old Gregorian style singing. The Kyrie is almost entirely made up of a cappella singing for eight voices. The Gloria ends with a fugue, as in Bruckner's other masses.  In the Sanctus, Bruckner uses a theme from Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina's Missa Brevis.

Previously Bruckner had been criticized for "simply writing symphonies with liturgical text," and although the Cecilians (a group opposed to the use of any instruments at all in religious music) were not entirely happy with the inclusion of wind instruments, "Franz Xaver Witt loved it, no doubt rationalizing the use of wind instruments as necessary under the circumstances of outdoor performance for which Bruckner wrote the piece."

Bruckner made four successive revisions of the work, in 1866, 1869, 1876, and 1882, and it is the 1896 edition of the 1882 version that has become overwhelmingly the most popular. Accordingly, this is the version we have based our ChoraLine rehearsal CD on.
