    I just finished counting the votes of each member. All composers cited by each member were counted, including when a different number than three citations was considered, except if the composer didn't write a requiem, was cited negatively, or was already cited in a previous participation of the member. The composers and their respective scores (citations) follow below (in alphabetical order when more than one per score):

    1. Mozart .................................................. ............. 68
    2. Fauré .................................................. ............... 56
    3. Brahms .................................................. ............ 49
    4. Verdi .................................................. ............... 44
    5. Berlioz .................................................. ............. 32
    6. Duruflé .................................................. ............ 17
    7. Britten and Dvorak ............................................... 16
    8. Ligeti, Ockeghem and Victoria ................................ 11
    9. Cherubini and M. Haydn ........................................ 10
    10. Schnittke .................................................. ......... 7
    11. Saint-Saëns .................................................. ..... 6
    12. Rutter .................................................. ............. 5
    13. Biber, Howells, Morales, Penderecki and Webber ...... 4
    14. Lassus, Palestrina and Richafort ............................. 3

    The following composers received two votes: Cardoso, Delius, Desenclos, Gilles, Gounod, Guerrero, Howells, Liszt, Lobo, Moran, Pizzetti, Sculthorpe and Zelenka.

    The remaining composers, cited only once, are: Artyomov, J.C. Bach, Birtwistle, Bravo, Campra, Cavalli, Caurroy, Escobar, Eybler, Fornells, Foulds, Fux, Gossec, Hamerik, Hamilton, Hasse, Henze, Hindemith, Holmboe, Jenkins, Kabalevsky, Kokkonen, Kozlovsky, Magalhães, Neukomm, Nunes Garcia, Preisner, Ropartz, Rutti, Ryu, Schumann, Schutz, Sgambati, Shaw, Stanford, Stravinsky, Suppé and Tüür.

    1. JS Bach, Motetten (not literally a Requiem-text, but written for the same occasion)
    2. Messiaen, Éclairs sur l'Au-Dela (no words, but very similar Requiem structure)

    On topic:
    1. Britten
    2. Durufle
    3. Brahms

    Mozart's requiem is - it seems - more popular among TC members than any other requiem.

    and its the only incomplete requiem in that list.

    ironic isnt it.

    They are all about death, so not that ironic.

    Instead of the smell of napalm in the morning ala Apocalypse Now, there’s nothing like a good Michael Haydn Requiem. As much as I esteem his older brother, I believe Micheal could be somewhat warmer in sound. But both were terrific as treasures of the Classical era and I consider Michael as underrated and deserving of being heard more instead of usually being viewed in his brother’s shadow. Unfortunately, it didn’t help his reputation that he was known for being a heavy drinker and was criticized by Leopold Mozart. Nevertheless, I find something deeply sincere in his liturgical works, some of which inspired his friend Mozart’s great Requiem.

    Berlioz. The passage from earth through purgatory to heaven from Lacrymosa to Sanctus is unmatched orchestrally.
