The Requiem has a mysterious history, riddled with deception and manipulation. The work was commissioned by Count Walsegg in July 1791, who wanted to pass off the work as his own, so the circumstances of the commission were kept secret. Upon Mozart’s death, Constanze (his wife) had the work completed by other composers, but in order to receive the final payment, their assistance had to be kept secret.

At the same time, Constanze wanted to present the Requiem as being entirely written by Mozart, in order for her to make the most of it. When it became known that others except Mozart assisted with the Requiem, Constanze insisted that Mozart left explicit instructions for the work’s completion. Many claimed that Antonio Salieri played a role in the completion and commision of the Requiem as well as involving him in Mozart’s death.
