No other musical artwork has been the cause of such legends, daring theories or controversies, as the Requiem. The circumstances surrounding the emergence of this work, which was left unfinished by the composer strongly raised early speculations, which were far removed from the actual facts. The 19th century leaned toward the legendary embellishment of historical events, in particular when details were unknown or could be verified for certain. The Requiem was a prime example of this phenomenon.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
