Morbid Melody? Requiem Mass

One of my favorites from Mozart: Requiem Mass in D minor – Lacrimosa (Latin for weeping).

Mozart died at the age of 35, after which his popularity grew. His burial site has remained a mystery though. There’s debate as to whether or not he was buried in a mass/common grave due to his financial status or burial regulations at the time. Apparently, discussions regarding the cause of his death continue as well. Whether it was from illness or by someone’s hand (poisoning), no one has been able to definitively prove.
