Requiem in C minor, ZWV 45 (ca. 1737). The requiem (probably from the mid 1730s) is a marvel of concision demanded by the time limit for the event it commemorates - the death of Kaiser Joseph I (1678-1711). Avoiding declamation and keeping the polyphony transparent, the whole mass runs less than 45 minutes and still manages to display Zelenka's personal fingerprints.

This requiem (ZWV 45) is for orchestra, choir and soloists. The requiem was found in Prague in the 1980s, first performed in 1984. A "full" mass, including a "Dies irae".
