Question about Mozart

I'm currently reading Maynard Solomon's bio called, "Mozart: A Life" and I'm loving every minute of it. Someone hear recommended it, I think.

I have a question though for all you Mozart-buffs. What exactly is Freemasonry? It is described in the book as something spiritual that embraces brotherhood and self-respect. It was suggested that Wolfgang found this was something he could openly embrace, considering how his father treated him throughout his life. It also states that they were anti-clerical and were against Jesuits.

I'm not getting a real grasp of what exactly being a Mason means. Why did Mozart become one and compose music in the Freemason style?

Any help on this topic would be much appreciated. :)
