This working sheet contains Beethoven's analysis of the Kyrie fugue from Mozart's Requiem on one side and a sketch for his Missa Solemnis on the other. Beethoven invented special symbols for Mozart's use of double counterpoint and compound 4/4 meter, and made frequent use of this meter in his late fugues, especially the Gloria fugue in the Missa Solemnis.
