Greetings steemians! Today, Holy Tuesday I want to continue this tribute of Sacred Music for Holy Week with the best Kyrie Eleison written, in my opinion. I am referring to the Kyrie of the Requiem of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison, Kyrie Eleison, these words in Latin are translated as «Lord Ten Piety, Christ Have Piety, Lord Ten Piety», part of the Catholic ritual of the celebration of Holy Mass. Normally interpreted with music, it is a short but powerful phrase.
The great musical Mozart produced one of the most impressive counterpoints of the history of music with this short phrase, making it eternal and immortal since its premiere on January 2, 1793 in the city of Vienna Below I present this recorded version on September 15, 1971 when the bicentenary of the death of the composer in the city of Vienna by the Philharmonic Orchestra and the concert opera choir of the State of Vienna in the Cathedral of the city, was celebrated. directed by Sur Georg Solti.
