Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Requiem was among the composer's most remarkable works -- and also one of his last. Commissioned by a mysterious patron who hid his identity from Mozart, the funeral mass was written while he was slowly dying, and he in fact passed on before it was completed, leaving one of his students to finish the work. Sir Colin Davis leads The Bavarian Radio Symphony in this stellar performance of the Requiem, taped in Munich, which features vocal soloists Edith Mathis (soprano), Truseliese Schmidt (alto), Peter Schreier (tenor), and Gwynne Howell (bass).
