|description||Requiem Mass in D Minor
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's final Masterpiece was commissioned in mid 1,791 by the Austrian count Franz Von Walsegg, as a Tribute to the passing of his young wife Anna. Mozart began his final composition in Prague, suffering from an undetermined illness, which would eventually take his life and rob him of the chance to see the completion of his Magnum Opus. After Mozart's death, his understudy 'Franz Xaver Süssmayr', at the behest of Mozart's wife, completed the missing parts of the Requiem.
Requiem Mass was first performed on January 2, 1,793, in a private concert for the benefit of Mozart's grieving wife, Constanze Mozart.
I moan as one who is guilty: owning my shame with a red face; suppliant before you, Lord.
You, who absolved Mary, and listened to the thief, give me hope also.
My prayers are unworthy, but, good Lord, have mercy, and rescue me from eternal fire.
Provide me a place among the sheep, and separate me from the goats, guiding me to Your right hand.
I kneel with submissive heart, my contrition is like ashes, help me in my final condition.
because You are merciful.
