Schubert Mass No.4 in C Major: Tempo

How fast should conductors take "andante con moto" in Schubert's Mass No. 4 in C Major, Kyrie movment? I know that "andante" is in range between 76-107, but is that how it is in Romantic era as well? Andante, a speed of walking distnace is vague to me. Also does "andante" refers to quarter note pulse, or eighth? Since all it says on the score is "andante con moto" and no other indication, I am confused. I have listened to seveal recordings with all different tempos. Thoughts or answers?
