|Music notes||The Requiem Mass in D minor K.626 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was composed in Vienna in 1791 and left unfinished at the time of the composer’s death on Dec. 5. Franz Xaver Sussmayer completed the work in 1792.
At the time Mozart was writing the Requiem, he was also deeply engaged with the writing of two operas, “The Marriage of Figaro” and “The Clemency of Titus.” When Mozart died he had only finished the “Introit” of the Requiem. The “Kyrie,” “Sequence,” and “Offertorium”
were sketched and the last three movements remained unwritten.
