Mozart’s Dies Irae is technically precise and swift in tempo with the choir clearly proclaiming over the instruments the wrath of hell.

Kristof Penderecki builds upon the Mozart’s structure to create a truly unsettling Dies Irae and Tuba Mirum full of rapidly oscillating tones in the strings. Although he is no Seiji Osawa, Penderecki’s music makes up for his lack of attitude.

Giuseppe Verdi’s Dies Irae surpasses them all with stunning dynamics and fluidity.
