Most of Mozart's Requiem was composed by Süssmayr. 'Stansi was OK with the subterfuge regarding its authorship, for the piece was commissioned by Count Franz von Walsegg, and she needed the money. The count might have been somewhat reluctant to pay for it had she let up that her husband had died before he got beyond completing the first movement, sketching out the second, and possibly - just possibly - a couple more.

Still, a great work. Süssmayr seems to have been truly inspired by what Wolfie had left behind.

There must be hundreds of recordings of that piece. Here is one of them.

Vivaldi - Stabat Mater. Margarethe Bence (contralto), Stuttgart Pro Musica Orchestra. Originally recorded in the late 60's (can't track down the exact year atm) and re-released on various labels. This is the only version I've heard which, imo, has a realistic tempo in certain verses (1 and 5; 3-4 and 7-8). They achieved this by pairing verses with similar scoring together. I don't think I've come across another rendition that does this. It has the benefit of extending the melody so that, for example, the opening isn't 2 minutes long, but rather almost 4 (2 might sound "unacceptable" in performance) without sacrificing the driving rhythm. Otherwise, to extend the melody most groups simply... e x t e n d it. Making it sound, not 'somber' imo, but anemic.

Another advantage of this recording is that, at least in the above 6 verses, the basso continuo includes both an organ and a harpsichord, in addition to base/cello. The running base line in verses 4 ("Que mœrebat et dolebat") and 8 ("Vidit suum dulcem natum") is a thing of beauty. Combined with the key signature (F minor) & vigorous tempo, these couplets manage an accusatory tone that pretty much all other versions lack.

Verses 1 & 5: 0:00-3:41
Verses 3&4 and 7&8: 6:17-9:03


A better "Amen" with Andreas Scholl (countertenor) & Ensemble 415:

While Orff's Carmina Burana is one of my favourites, the originals have a certain charm. Orff only used 24 of the original 254 songs.

Did someone mention the theorbo? What about theorbo and baroque guitar?

I rather like the bit from 4:25: Murcia's Folias Galegas. And there is a take-no-prisoners version of Pipo's Danza No.1 at 11:10.
The acoustic is hard. And all the better for it.

Yo soy la locura, la que sola infundo
placer y dulzura y contento al mundo.

Sirven a mi nombre todos mucho o poco,
y no, no hay hombre que piense ser loco.


I am insanity, that which only instills
pleasure and sweetness and happiness to the world.

In my name serve all people much or a little,
but there is not a man who believes he is insane.

There are better recordings available, even on Youtube (e.g. the stunning performance by Montserrat Figueras), but I like the visual theatricality involved with this one.

Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, IMO, is the only interpreter of Schubert lieder I can listen to.
