The Messe des pêcheurs de Villerville (Mass of the fishermen of Villerville) is a missa brevis written by Gabriel Fauré in collaboration with his former pupil André Messager. The Kyrie and the O Salutaris were composed by Messager, the Gloria, Sanctus and Agnus Dei by Faure. A later version, published as Messe basse, contained only movements composed by Fauré.
