Robert Wagner Chorale
The Requiem in C minor for mixed chorus was written by Luigi Cherubini in 1815 and premiered 21 January 1816 at a commemoration service for Louis XVI of France.This particular setting of the requiem mass consists of seven movements:
Introitus et Kyrie. 2.Graduale 3. Dies Irae 4. Offertorium 5. Sanctus 6. Pie Jesu 7. Agnus Dei
In 1820 a funeral march and a motet In Paradisum were added.
In 1834 the work was prohibited by the archbishop of Paris because of its use of women's voices, and in 1836 Cherubini wrote a second Requiem in D minor for men's chorus.
