During the summer of 1791 Mozart was approached 
by a mysterious stranger with a commission for a 
Requiem Mass, under the stipulation that Mozart never attempt 
to learn the identity of the commissioner. Mozart worked assiduously 
on the Requiem, and as his health deteriorated he became convinced 
that the Requiem would be his own. The Requiem was incomplete 
at the composer’s death, but his pupil, Süssmayr, filled in the gaps 
so that Mozart’s widow could collect the commission. The work has been 
surrounded by mystery since its creation, and its incredible beauty and 
compositional excellence have endeared it to succeeding generations 
of singers and listeners alike.
