Mozart – Requiem in D minor

Great Mass in C-minor – KYRIE
The work was composed during 1782-83. In a letter to his father Leopold dated 14 January 1783, Mozart alluded to a vow he had made “in the depth of his heart” to write a work of thanksgiving for the recovery from illness of his (then) fiancée Constanze, also mentioning that the work was already half-finished. The Kyrie and Gloria were first performed in the Church of St. Peter’s Abbey in Salzburg on Sunday, 26 October 1783. The premiere took place in a Roman Catholic Mass, and the performers were members of the “Hofmusik”, that is the musicians employed at the court of Salzburg’s ruler, Prince-Archbishop Count Hieronymus von Colloredo. Mozart’s wife Constanze was the soloist for the first soprano at the premiere. There was a rehearsal in the nearby Kapellhaus on Thursday, 23 October 1783.
