Requiem KV 626. Vocal score.

...After two failed attempts, the task passed to Mozart’s pupil Franz Xaver Süßmayr, who completed the Requiem in the form known today, using working materials that are no longer extant, and perhaps verbal instructions from the composer. Today the Süßmayr version is still the most well known, and it is doubtless the one with the closest historical ties to Mozart. Süßmayr’s version of the Requiem has been published in a new edition which is true to the original sources.
