W.A. Mozart - Requiem (KV 626) - Dies irae...

Conducted by Leonard Bernstein with Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks. About Bernstein at Wikipedia (in Swedish and here in English). He died on October 1990, so this recording must be quite "old"?

"Dies Irae" means "The Day of Judgement" in English? And "Vredens stora dag" in Swedish. At Wikipedia it stands about Dies Irae:

"The ‘Dies Irae’ is still suggested in the Liturgy of the Hours for the last week before Advent as the opening hymn for the Office of Readings, Lauds and Vespers (divided into three parts)."
