Mozart Requiem
From Chicago’s Historic St. John Cantius Church

DVD video
From the heart of Chicago, St. John Cantius presents the iconic Mozart Requiem in its proper setting--the Latin Requiem High Mass.

Enter into the beauty of the Requiem through this video filmed at Chicago’s historic St. John Cantius Catholic Church.

Let the awe-inspiring music of Mozart, presented by the St. Cecilia Choir and Orchestra, be a window into the depth and glory of this repertoire as it would have been originally presented by Mozart.

This DVD was re-released on De Montfort Music/Sony Classical in 2017.

Each year on All Souls’ Day, November 2, people gather at Chicago’s historic St. John Cantius Catholic Church to attend the Latin High Mass and pray for the blessed repose of the souls of the faithful departed. The music that accompanies this poignant and beautiful Liturgy is the famous Mozart Requiem sung by the St. Cecilia Choir and Orchestra of St. John Cantius Church.

This DVD presentation of Mozart’s Requiem for All Souls’ Day inspires us to pray for the dead—one of the spiritual works of mercy. We hope that as you watch this DVD you will enter into the beauty of the Sacred Liturgy through the window of sacred music. The Gregorian chant, sung by the Schola Cantorum of St. John Cantius, and the awe-inspiring music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, presented by the St. Cecilia Choir and Orchestra, are a window through which you are invited to peer—that you might catch a glimpse of God’s glory.

History of the Mozart Requiem
The Requiem Mass in D minor (K. 626) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was composed in Vienna in 1791 and left unfinished at the composer's death on December 5. A completion dated 1792 by Franz Xaver Süssmayr was delivered to Count Franz von Walsegg, who had anonymously commissioned the piece for a Requiem Mass to commemorate the February 14 anniversary of his wife's death.
