The birth pangs of Mozart’s Requiem

This week I have been following Carlos’ exhortation to learn something of how Mozart’s Requiem came to be composed.  It’s a fascinating story and well worth getting to know.

Much of the detail is surrounded in mystery, and somethings can only be surmised.  There is a mountain of material, which I have tried to condense into something readable, while also leaving pointers to the detail for those who are interested.  You can read as much or as little of it as you have time for.
