Description: This work was written in 1771 when Michael Haydn was Director of Music for the Archbishop of Salzburg. The Mozart family were active in Salzburg at that time, and this Requiem clearly had a profound effect on the young Mozart, whose own Requiem of some 20 years later shows the influence of this earlier work.
