The Messa da Requiem is a musical setting of the Catholic funeral mass (Requiem) for four soloists, double choir and orchestra by Giuseppe Verdi. It was composed in memory of Alessandro Manzoni, an Italian poet and novelist whom Verdi admired. The first performance, at the San Marco church in Milan on 22 May 1874, marked the first anniversary of Manzoni's death. The work was at one time called the Manzoni Requiem. It is rarely performed in liturgy, but rather in concert form of around 85–90 minutes in length. Musicologist David Rosen calls it 'probably the most frequently performed major choral work composed since the compilation of Mozart's Requiem'.

"Lux Aeterna" (Eternal Light) is the closing words of the Messa da Requiem replacing the blessing of the congregation used in the
regular Mass, iterating once more the concerns for perpetual light and rest for those who have died. The Mozart and Cherubini versions append this portion to the "Agnus Dei"; Berlioz omits it in order to repeat a part of his Introit. Verdi makes it a separate movement, an intimate and loving farewell to the saintly figure of Manzoni. The chorus and solo soprano do not sing here; Verdi reserves them for the last movement.
