Details

From the heart of Chicago, St. John Cantius - "the most beautiful church in the US" - the St. Cecilia Choir and Orchestra present the classic Süssmayr completion of Mozart’s Requiem. This fresh interpretation of Mozart’s iconic Requiem is beautifully phrased and brings out delicate nuances rarely heard.From the firey Dies Irae to the plaintive tenderness of the Recordare, listeners appreciate the rich and tender sounds of this choir and orchestra. Recorded at the venerable St. John Cantius and re-released in 2017.The Requiem Mass in D minor (K. 626) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was composed in Vienna in 1791 and left unfinished at the composer’s death on December 5. A completion dated 1792 by Franz Xaver Süssmayr was delivered to Count Franz von Walsegg, who had anonymously commissioned the piece for a Requiem Mass to commemorate the February 14 anniversary of his wife’s death.
