Notes & Reviews:
Although music scholars have been aware of the 'Messa di Gloria' by Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) for a considerable time, the piece only began to appear in concert programs relatively recently. The score was in fact not published until 1951. Since then the work has been known generally as the 'Messa di Gloria'. Puccini incorporated two other pieces of church music into the score of the 'Messa' - a motet and a Credo. The entire composition had originally been conceived as a large choral work, but the final version is for two solo voices, a four-part choir and a large orchestra.
