Agnus Dei
by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi,
dona eis requiem.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi,
dona eis requiem sempiternam.

Not so fun fact: Mozart didn't compose this movement of his requiem. It was Sussmayr, Mozart's student, that completed most of the Requiem, using some already existing drafts Mozart composed before his death. So basically Sanctus and Agnus Dei were actually completely composed bu Sussmayr, not Mozart.

It's quite complicated to say where Mozart began and ended. Most of the movements have a lot of Mozart in them, though not necessarily the orchestration beyond the voices. This movement and the Sanctus and Benedictus were apparently all Sussmayr's. But yeah, it's possible Mozart hummed some things to him or whatever. Here's a page with some good info:

m ・ ́ω・

"The autograph manuscript (acquired by the Austrian National Library in 1831–38) shows the finished and orchestrated Introit in Mozart's hand, as well as detailed drafts of the Kyrie and the sequence Dies Irae as far as the first eight bars of the "Lacrymosa" movement, and the Offertory. It cannot be shown to what extent Süssmayr may have depended on now lost "scraps of paper" for the remainder; he later claimed the Sanctus and Agnus Dei as his own. Walsegg probably intended to pass the Requiem off as his own composition, as he is known to have done with other works. This plan was frustrated by a public benefit performance for Mozart's widow Constanze. She was responsible for a number of stories surrounding the composition of the work, including the claims that Mozart received the commission from a mysterious messenger who did not reveal the commissioner's identity, and that Mozart came to believe that he was writing the requiem for his own funeral."


mozart specialists (who know the mozart "special touch" very well) are able to hear when it's not him composing the piece anymore, which makes the requiem even more heartbreaking


what I believe happened is that,  if I'm at my dying and can't write, due to my illness, but the music still in my mind, i'll have someone write it for me.  similar to what happened in Amadeus movie...   Sussmayr wrote by instructions of Mozart while he was dying...   anyways, we will never know... my humble opinion.    However, interesting not so fun fact... :-)
