Notes & Reviews:

Of Johann Michael Haydn 's two Requiem settings, his incomplete late work, the Requiem in B-Flat Major, has remained in the shadow of his so-called Schrattenbach Requiem in cminor, composed in 1771. Haydn, almost 70 at the time, who wrote his second "solemn requiem" on commission from the Empress Maria Theresa, could only complete the setting through the beginning of the Dies irae. Quite similar to Mozart 's Requiem fragment, Haydn 's work was completed by a musician of a "kindred spirit," since an incomplete Mass for the dead had scarcely a liturgical use. In 1839 Father Gunther Kronecker, choirmaster of the Benedictine monastery, Kremsmunster, took on this weighty task, and thus he was the "Sussmayr to Michael Haydn." Stylistically, his completion of the work - borne on lyrical-cantabile melody displaying at times a folk-song character - creates a bridge to the music of Franz Schubert and the Viennese Biedermeier. As an appropriate addendum, this important release contains four short works composed for church use by Mozart.
