Music and Grief: Why Mozart?

Have you lost a loved one lately? Yesterday I lost my beloved dog Jack. He was almost 14 years and was as much a part of the family as any human member. Today, I have found myself listening to the Mozart Requiem and feel unbelievably comforted by it. The music of Mozart is simply the most beautiful music that has been written to date. Of course that's my opinion. I also love Bach, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Rachmaninoff, and Debussy, but Mozart is simply with equal. If you are grieving today I highly recommend the Mozart Requiem. It's helping me to get through my loss.
