Beautifully released, double album including mournful mass. From Latin ‘requiem’ means ‘rest’. It describes a mass on the occasion to pray for the dead on the day of his funeral, few days after or on the funeral’s anniversary. On the CD1 we can hear Mozart’s mournful mass, which is his last and the biggest composition written on a deathbed. CD2 includes Brahm’s German Reqiem, which text is based on excerpts from the Bible.
