Conductus funebris
Period:Baroque
Composed in:1733(?)
Musical form:motet
Text/libretto:Latin
Conductus funebris (it contains, twice, the "Requiem aeternam" text), for four voices, two violins, two timpani, viola, double bass trombone and organ. This composition was intended for performance during the exequies (Ordo exequiarum), a funeral or burial ceremony.
It was, most probably, written in 1733 for the death of King August II the Strong (12/05/1670 31/01/1733) of Poland, and his funeral held at Wawel, in Krakow, seven months later (early September 1733).
