There is a sublime moment in Mozart's opera buffa Cosi fan tutte when a trio fondly wishes safe travels to their companions. The sheer beauty of this music (which reflects the sentiment of its original lyric) ends itself appropriately to a setting of the "Song of Farewell," drawn from In paradisum and Chorus angelorum. A fitting wish for peace for the departing soul.
