The consolation music offers in times of sorrow is one of its most remarkable properties, andone of the most valued. Musical elegies arenumerous, of course, and date to ancient timesand probably to pre-history. But the most highly developed species of musical threnody is singingof the Requiem, the Latin mass for the deceased.Settings of the Requiem text have been madeby innumerable composers over the centuries.One of the most beautiful and moving is that of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, which forms thesecond half of our concert. Lending poignancy to this already affecting music--Mozart wrote theRequiem during the last weeks of his life.The Requiem verses beseech eternal rest forthe departed and peace to those who survive.There are, of course, other texts and otherkinds of compositions that make similar pleas.Our concert begins with one of them, ArnoldSchoenberg’s
Friede auf Erden
, or
Peace on Earth
,a choral setting of a poem written for Christmas.Between these works we hear the D-majorCello Concerto of Franz Joseph Haydn. Haydnenjoyed a warm and mutually admiringrelationship with Mozart, who could be a harshcritic of other musicians. The fact that Mozart considered Haydn a dear friend attests not only 
to Haydn’s ne character but also the quality of 
his music.
PEACE ON EARTH AND HEAVENLY PEACE
