The Requiem Op. 9, by Maurice Duruflé was published in 1947 by the French music publisher Durand. Commissioned in 1941 by the collaborationist Vichy regime, Duruflé was still working on the piece at the time of the regime's collapse in 1944, and completed it in 1947, dedicating it to the memory of his father.

At the time of commission, Duruflé was working on an organ suite using themes from Gregorian chants. He incorporated his sketches for that work into the Requiem, which uses numerous themes from the Gregorian 'Mass for the Dead'. Nearly all the thematic material in the work comes from chant.

José Maurício Nunes Garcia (1767 – 1830) was a Brazilian classical composer, one of the greatest exponents of Classicism in the Americas. His musical style was strongly influenced by Viennese composers of the period, such as Mozart and Haydn.
