My Favorite Pieces of Classical Music Monday: My Favorite Pieces of Classical Music: Part 14

I am resuming talking about classical music, after a long hiatus!

I will discuss two pieces by Mozart.

From his Requiem Mass in D Minor, specifically the Introitus: Requiem aeternam and the Lacrimosa dies illa movements

They sound so dark and chilling and haunting.  They are another example of Mozart’s genius.  Mozart died leaving the whole work incomplete; it was completed by  Franz Xaver Süssmayr .

Introitus: Requiem aeternam

Lacrimosa dies illa

Full work
