Joseph Martin Kraus (1756-1792) composed his Requiem in 1775at the age of 19 for the parish church in his hometown of Buchen, Odenwald. This followed the Miserere of 1773, and is the second of his surviving sacred compositions. Already in this early work Kraus shows that he was a representative of the musical "Sturm und Drang." With all its youthful unconcern towards compositional technique, this music displays his seriousness and strength of expression, together with a dark instrumental timbre, as well as an abruptness or at times brusqueness. The publication of the Requiem in the Complete Edition is the first historical and critical edition of the work.
