Mozart's last, great work, his Requiem, was tragically left incomplete when the composer himself died. However, the power and beauty of this famous piece has ensured its immortality, not least through the play and movie Amadeus. ABC Classics is proud to release this period-instrument recording of this masterpiece, performed by a stellar line-up of Australasian musicians. Alongside the Requiem, tracks include Mozart's sublime soprano cantata Exsultate, jubilate (with its famous 'Alleluia' finale), sung by Sara Macliver; and the exquisite chorale Ave Verum Corpus. A must-have for any record collection.
This album is Volume 25 in the series "1000 Years of Classical Music" – a series of 100 volumes charting the history of music from the Renaissance to today.
