Domenico Cimarosa's abilities as an operatic composer are evident in his large-scale Requiem. In this mournful work the soloists and chorus range from the mournful supplication of the opening movements, through vivid evocations of the 'day of wrath' and the praises uttered by the heavenly hosts in the Sanctus, to the prayers for mercy, peace and eternal light which conclude the work. Composed to commemorate the death in 1787 of the wife of the French ambassador in St Petersburg, its overall character is one of classical restraint.
