Michael Haydn wrote the Missa pro defuncto Archiepiscopo Sigismondo, or more generally Missa pro Defunctis, Klafsky I:8, MH 155, following the death of the Count Archbishop Sigismund von Schrattenbach in Salzburg in December 1771. Haydn completed the Requiem before the year was over, signing it "S[oli] D[eo] H[onor] et G[loria.] Salisburgi 31 Dicembre 1771." At the beginning of that year, his daughter Aloisia Josefa[1] died. Historians believe "his own personal bereavement" motivated the composition.[2] Contemporary materials which have survived to the present day include the autograph score found in Berlin, a set of copied parts with lots of corrections in Haydn's hand in Salzburg and another set at the Esterházy castle in Eisenstadt, and a score prepared by the Salzburg copyist Nikolaus Lang found in Munich.[3]

The mass is scored for vocal soloists and mixed choir, 2 bassoons,[4] 4 trumpets in C, 3 trombones, timpani and strings with basso continuo.

    "Benedictus qui venit..." Allegretto, E-flat major, 3/4
  5. Agnus Dei et Communio
    "Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi" Adagio con moto, C minor, common time
    "Cum sanctis tuis" Allegretto, C minor, cut time
    "Requiem aeternam" Adagio, C minor, common time
    "Cum sanctis tuis" Allegretto, C minor, cut time

Sherman recommends a tempo relation in which "in Agnus Dei et Communio, the Vorlage:Music of both Agnus Dei and Requiem aeternam equals Vorlage:Music of the fugue Cum sanctis tuis."[5] Sherman also recommends interpreting the Andante maestoso of the Dies Irae at "a pulse of Vorlage:Music = MM. 104."[6] Leopold Mozart instructs "that the staccato indicates a lifting of the bow from the string" with no accent implied.[7]

Both Leopold and his son Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart were present at the first three performances of Haydn's Requiem in January 1772,[8][9] and Wolfgang was influenced in the writing of his own Requiem in D minor, K. 626.[10] In fact, Michael Haydn's Requiem is "an important model for Mozart" and strongly suggests that Franz Xaver Süssmayr's completion of Mozart's way does not depart "in any way from Mozart's plans."[11]
