W. A. Mozart’s Requiem is one of the best and most moving pieces classical music has to offer. The myths surrounding Mozart's last composition contribute to the incredible appeal of this masterpiece. The Requiem is filled with the strong emotions that come to man in the face of death: Fear, anger, despair, sadness, hope, consolation.

During his lifetime and after his death, Mozart was associated with the cathedral in several ways: He married Constanze Weber there, had two of his children baptized in the cathedral and a few months before his death, Mozart applied for the position of music director adjunct at St. Stephen's. Mozart's name can be found both in the record of his death and in the cathedral's Book of Death Fees.

The XOP Baltic Choir has embarked on the long journey from Japan to Austria to support St. Stephen's Cathedral with a performance of Mozart's Requiem. "Baltic Choir" means "the Choir of the Baltic Sea". The name was inspired by the St. Petersburg years of study of the conductor of the choir, Satoshi Kawasaki. Under the charming and passionate direction of Satoshi Kawasaki, the choir tries to express the essence of the work and the composer in its performances.
