Johann Joseph Fux (1660 St. Marein/Graz - 1741 Vienna) composed this Requiem mass for the widowed Empress Eleonore (widow of Leopold I) in 1720. It was also performed for the funerals of Leopold Joseph of Loraine, Prince Eugene of Savoy and Emperor Charles VI and is therefore known as the so-called Imperial Requiem. Ill.: Castrum doloris for Charles VI. (E. Stadler)
