Mozart Requiem

Haydn D Minor "Nelson" Mass

Saturday, 16 May 2020 at 7:30 pm

St Luke's Church, Norfolk Road, Maidenhead

 

Mozart’s final and unfinished work was his Requiem, commissioned by Count Walsegg in memory of his late wife, but felt by many, including Mozart, to be Mozart’s own requiem… Mozart's wife Constanze persuaded her husband's pupil Süssmayr to complete the work. (From notes by John Dalton)

 

Widely known as the 'Nelson Mass', this work was actually completed before Nelson's victory in the Battle of the Nile in 1798. Haydn himself never used the title Nelson Mass. He later catalogued the work as a Missa in Angustiis, a 'mass in times of distress'. (From notes by Thomas McCahill.)
