One of the most magnificent works in the treasury of classical music, the Requiem, is the last work of the great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The composer wrote this most famous mass for the deceased for a mysterious client, Count Franz von Walsegg-Stupach, but died before completing it. In his setting of the mass for the deceased, Mozart stuck to the prescribed sacral style as developed by Bach, Händel and Italian Baroque masters, however, he combined old forms with the moving experience of approaching death.
