The Grande Messe des morts (or Requiem), Op. 5, by Hector Berlioz was composed in 1837. The Grande Messe des Morts is one of Berlioz's best-known works, with a tremendous orchestration of woodwind and brass instruments, including four antiphonal off-stage brass ensembles placed at the corners of the concert stage. The work derives its text from the traditional Latin Requiem Mass.
