This requiem wrote Leopold I for the funeral of his first wife: Margarita Maria Teresa (1651 - 1673), daughter of Philip IV, King of Spain and Maria Anna Archdutchess of Austria.
Gabaron: "I listened to this very short piece several times in a row while I was doing email and chatting with friends, and every time I tuned in to the music is was new, fresh and lively. The refrain of the Requiem in the "Agnus Dei" is phenomenal! Ecstatic! Wonderful! I was completely impressed. For a work of the baroque to capture so much of my attention is rare..."
