Requiem Aeternam

Today is the anniversary of the death  Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. I commemorate it every year. Was not sure how to do it today, but since I know that his Requiem is played in Vienna on that day, so here it is. I tried to find a good enough version, not sure it's the best one on YouTube, but you have subtitles on it, which gives a new perspective on the work. Amadeus knew he was dying when he composed it, or at least he was pretty sure of it, so the suffering in the music is pretty much his own.
