Mozart’s Requiem has entered the realm of myth. This is surely the best-known of all sacred choral works and is performed all over the world. Now a new version for solo voices, chorus and organ allows this legendary masterpiece to be performed without orchestra, and thus without strain on the budget. The choral writing has been taken unaltered from the Urtext of the New Mozart Edition, while the organ part by Martin Focke adheres strictly to the original orchestral writing. The result is a version as convincing as it is self-contained.
Franz Xaver Süssmayr’s additions have been used to complete Mozart’s unfinished original.Self-contained version with organ instead of orchestraIdeal for church services and concert performancesClear and well-presented organ part
The Bärenreiter Choir & Organ Series presents great choral works in arrangements for soloists, choir and organ; no orchestra is needed.
The original orchestral parts have been transcribed into easy-to-play organ reductions whereby the contemporary tradition of such arrangements has been taken into consideration. In some cases, the original organ versions by the composer were used. The organ parts are presented on three staves. The choir and solo parts always remain true to the original. You need only one edition for soloists, singers and organist alike.
