Drottningholmsmusique (1744) – music for a royal wedding (YouTube link)

 


Otto Olsson (1879-1964) http://ottoolsson.bluemusicgroup.com/bio

The opening two sections (Requiem and Kyrie) from his beautiful Requiem (YouTube link)   A work which deserves to be better known in the webmaster’s opinion !  Lets hope that it will be performed in England sometime.
