About :Mozart's 'Ave Verum' is a masterpiece sang all over the world. It was written in peculiar circumstances: in April 1791, Leopold Hofmann, St Stephen's Cathedral Kapellmeister in Vienna, was stroke by a severe illness. Mozart, who had never been interested in religious music, took this opportunity to earn more money, hence why he eventually turned back to this genre-his previous sacred composition being the Great Mass in C-Major, K427 (1782). Mozart's sacred music then reached its climax with his Requiem. Ironically, Hofmann lived longer than Mozart, who died that very same year.
