Miserere mei Deus

he did what!!!! today the Miserere mei, Deus is well known but back then apparently at some time in history the piece became forbidden to be copied.

But the story is a bit more complicated than Mozart just copying it…

Miserere (Allegri)   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miserere_(Allegri)

Mozart’s illegal copy of Allegri’s Miserere                                                     http://www.andrea-angelini.eu/mozart-miserere/

If it wasn’t for Mozart, this piece would have been forgotten forever http://www.classicfm.com/composers/mozart/guides/mozart-allegri-miserere/

That time Mozart pirated a forbidden piece of music from the Catholic Church from memory                                             http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2017/01/time-mozart-pirated-music-1700s/

My other life that I am now pursuing is writing along the lines of fantasy/sci fi fictional writing as my one way to stay sane in this other insane world.
