Verdi: Requiem / Musica Sacra

Notes & Reviews:

The death of Verdi's friend, and favorite author Alessandro Manzoni provided the catalyst for what is the grandest of all Requiems. Premiered in 1874 with the composer conducting, it was an immediate success, and Verdi toured the work to Paris, London, Cologne and Vienna - conducting it more often than any of his operas. Overtly operatic in nature, it has been called 'Verdi's greatest opera', but it is a deeply spiritual work, adhering to the traditional Mass for the dead. It ranks among the very greatest of religious works alongside Bach's Mass in B minor, Mozart's Requiem and Beethoven's Missa Solemnis. This 2005 recording includes booklet notes, source details and sung texts.
