[+] Poland, Jeffrey T. "Michael Haydn and Mozart: Two Requiem Settings." American Choral Review 29, no. 1 (Winter 1987): 3-14.

Haydn's Requiem in C Minor shares numerous similarities with Mozart's Requiem, in instrumentation, choral and instrumental textures, placement of solo sections, specific features of style and technique, movement structure, tonal design and cadential progressions, and rhythmic patterns of text setting. The similarities between the works decrease significantly in those sections completed or composed by Süssmayer.
