Hey fella's, it's been quite a while, but i have this song stuck in my head, and it's quite a famous one and I'm trying to figure out who wrote it. It´s just a simple chord progressions which probably isn´t the original key of the piece.

I believe it's choral (or there are choral interpretations) or at least it's played by the strings in most versions I've heard:

Thanks guys!

Though not quite right, the progression is similar to Chopin's C minor prelude.

Scott

I agree with Scott. Further the tempo and harmonic rhythm are the same with the Chopin Op.28, No.20.

No, I know it´s not Chopin, and I know his Op.28 no. 20 on piano, so it´s most certainly not that one. I don´t think it´s even for piano. It´s played by the strings or choral, and it sounds a lot like what´s there. But thanks for trying!

Op... wait, I just remembered. Heard it over and Mozart´s Requiem Lacrimosa was what I was looking for.

Thanks though guys!

That's some of the most beautiful music ever written!
