Mozart Requiem

The Royal Free Singers

Spring Concert 2016

Like his penultimate Mass, the "Great" C minor Mass, Mozart never completed his last, the Requiem (K626).  Unlike the C minor Mass, however, it was written to a commission and in order to fulfil this and not risk forfeiting the fee, his widow Constanze asked Mozart’s pupil Süssmayr to complete it from the sketches Mozart had left of the unfinished movements. 

The other works in the concert are a performance by the Orchestra of London of Mozart’s last symphony, the Jupiter, composed in 1788 and the incomparable motet Ave Verum Corpus, Mozart’s last completed sacred work, composed in June 1791 only a few months before his death.

Saturday, March 19th, Windsor Parish Church 7.30 pm
