Less than one year before Mozart died, he received a commission for a death mass from a mysterious stranger who intended to pass it off as his own composition. Mozart died penniless before he completed his final composition. To pay for his funeral, his widow had one of his students complete the work as we know it today: Mozart’s Requiem Mass.
