What is the name of the music that starts at 09:50 and 15:29 in this Youtube video?

I tried it with Shazam but it couldn't find it.

Does anyone know this music? It would be really helpful.

    I can't see this video, it's bloqued in my country. Do you have an alternative link?

I have found the exact track, it is:

Last Will And Testament

from the Wes Anderson movie "Grand Budapest Hotel".


Sounds a bit like a Dies irae theme, albeit with some backing chords that aren't often used. Once you hear it in a couple places, you start hearing it everywhere.

A few examples of other places it has been used:

Of course, not everybody does this part of the mass the same way. Here's Dvořák's take on it:

  • 03 - dvorak 's requiem: dies irae

And here's Verdi's:

  • BBC Prom 13 - Verdi Requiem - Dies Irae e Tuba Mirum
