The Tuba Mirum movement always brings tears to my eyes. The ending is mournful and beautiful.

The thing about Requiem is that Mozart died while composing the first few bars of the Lacrimosa movement and it was completed by his student, Franz Xavier Süssmayr. Süssmayr may have relied on Mozart's notes to complete it, but it's not really known to what extent.

At the request of his griving widow ...I read about that. At anyrate , I really like that piece regardless of what percentage of it Mozart actually wrote.

What amazes me is that so much of Mozart’s music exudes positive feelings of well-being, in contrast to the life he must have had, encouraged from an early age to churn out music on demand. Remarkable how consistent the quality is.
