Fridays in Lent: Mozart Requiem

Mozart-musicI’ve sung the Mozart Requiem in D minor at least thrice, once in 1985, once or twice in the 1990’s, and once on September 11, 2002. I LOVE this piece of music. The one problem singing it is that I have to keep from crying. As was made clear in the movie Amadeus, this is as much about the composer’s own death as Jesus’.

Some or all the music from this work appears in at least 70 movies and television episodes, plus a number of commercials.

Here is a live recording.
