Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Requiem K.626: Mixed Choir

Vocal Score | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Mixed Choir
Composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Publisher Oxford University Press
The Requiem was Mozart’s final composition. It was commissioned by the widow of the Countess von Walsegg who died in February 1791. After working on the Requiem through October and November, however, Mozart fell ill and died without completing it. Mozart's widow, needing money, asked Joseph Eybler to complete the work. Unfortunately, he could not finish the work, and it was handed over to Franz Xaver Sussmayr. However, Sussmayr was a musician of limited capabilities and much of his contribution was in fact a copy of Eybler's work.

This new edition of Mozart's Requiem starts afresh from Mozart's incomplete autograph, and uses none of Eybler or Sussmayr's contributions. The orchestration has been reworked throughout, using parts of Die Zauberflote and La Clemenza di Tito as the chief models.

Unless you know in advance you will be disappointed to find this is not the Mozart Requiem that most people know, but a new completion made in the 1980s. Even the movements that are essentially the same have differences which make for confusion if they are used together.
