The key of C major is a case of “less is more”: the key signature has no sharps or flats (a characteristic it shares with its relative minor, A minor), and scales are played only on the white keys of a keyboard. The C major scale is divided evenly by F-sharp, the register shift in both the soprano and tenor voices; which may be the reason that Mozart and Haydn composed most of their masses in that key.
