The Mass in D major (German: Messe D-Dur), Op. 86, is a mass composed by Antonín Dvořák in 1887. It is also called Lužanská mše (Lužany Mass) after the chapel in Lužany for which it was written. It was first a work for soloists, choir and organ (B 153), and expanded to an orchestra version in 1892 (B 175). Antonín Dvořák was commissioned to compose a mass by the architect and patron Josef Hlávka for the inauguration of the chapel that he had built for his summer residence in Lužany. Due to the size of the chapel, the choir had to be small, and no orchestra was possible
