Trashing Motzart is classy

We tend, for whatever reason, to neglect other Requiems in favour of Mozart's overly bombastic last triumph. Keep in mind that Mozart completed barely a third of this piece before his passing, so the credits that go to him for it are empty.

For your musical delectation, I provide the Agnus Dei from Gabriel Fauré's Requiem, Opus 48.
