Here is music written as a paean to Death. But it does not sound as we have accustomed ourselves to hear dirges. Mozart’s Requiem, the Mass Death, is full of life, full of a kind of joy, full of strong emotion – but not maudlin. And nevertheless, it was a man sick unto death who wrote this music: Life’s Song to Death. Listen, Feel it, and rejoice that it exists. This is the first time it has been heard in a Swedish recording
