Watch The Last Judgment by Michelangelo Buonarroti with movement Lacrimosa (D minor) from Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus MozartWatch The Last Judgment by Michelangelo Buonarroti with movement Lacrimosa from Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart The Last Judgment is a fresco by the Italian Renaissance painter Michelangelo covering between 1536 and 1541 the whole altar wall of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. It is a depiction of the Second Coming of Christ and the final and eternal judgment by God of all humanity. The souls of humans rise and descend to their fates, as judged by Christ who is surrounded by prominent saints. Altogether there are over 300 figures, with nearly all the males and angels originally shown as nudes; many were later partly covered up by painted draperies, of which some remain after recent cleaning and restoration. Full of tears will be that day / When from the ashes shall arise / The guilty man to be judged; / Therefore spare him, O God, Merciful Lord Jesus, / Grant them eternal rest. / Amen. Mozart composed part of the Requiempart of the Requiem in Vienna in late 1791. Lacrimosa movement is interrupted by his death.
Every corner is made with infinite care given to the tiniest details. Some of the saints are easily recognizable because they hold the symbols of their story or their martyrdom in there hands. Saint Peter, on Jesus's right, holds the two keys. Saint Lawrence holds the grate and Saint Sebastian kneels, holding the arrows with which he was martyred.
