"Lacrimosa" (Mozart's Requiem Mass)


this time the accreditation has to come here, as it's the teensiest bit too long for the 60 character Title limit. So put your hands together for:

Chapelle Royale/Collegium Vocale/Orchestre des Champs Élyssés

OK, OK, that's enough. Let's not go nuts.

I was tempted to put the entire Requiem Mass here as...well...it's Mozart at the top of his game (though it did require the help of others to finish it as he expired before it could be finalised). I chose this out of the whole thing as it's probably the most recognisable, but I'm getting in a bolshie mood as I'm typing this, so I'm going to include the entire performance anyway in case you have just under an hour to kill:

If that opening doesn't grab you firmly by the ears and get your full undivided attention then...words fail me.
