Mildred Miller co-stars as Siébel, the young student who is also in love with Marguerite

Requiem by Gabriel Fauré( )

25 editions published between 1962 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

December 1791, the final Requiem: Tired by his many voyages around Europe ever since he had been rejected in Vienna, Mozart could not find the strength to honour his promise to compose a Requiem in record time for the person who had commissioned it. He was in fact to be struck down by illness during its composition and it was his pupil Süssmayr who finished the work according to his instructions. This version remains the most convincing, for the presence and grandeur of Mozart are present everywhere - in the baroque imagination and the classical style, in the universal unrest and the sheer terror of a man alone in the face of Death
