It is the last piece of music that he had any personal input in as he died shortly thereafter (the Quam olim fugue was also written mainly by Mozart). The orchestration for Hostias as well as the Sanctus and Agnus Dei movements for the Requiem were completed by Franz Süssmayr who was a student of Mozart's. The final part of the Requiem which Mozart completed in its entirety was the Confutatis movement as well as the first 8 bars of the Lacrimosa (the part which ends with "Judicandus homo reus" for the first time).
