"The taste of death is on my tongue.
I feel something that is not from this world."
At the same time, a wealthy nobleman commissioned the writing of a requiem mass.
The mass was to go unfinished.
The cause of his death was sited as "severe miliary fever," however this remains obscured by speculation and myth.
His magnificent 'Requiem Mass in D Minor' would later be completed by his pupil Franz Süssmayr.
Mozart was buried in an unmarked grave in the St. Marx cemetery, Vienna.
