Notes & Reviews:

In opera the chorus provides a change from the solo voices in the on-stage production and form an integral part of the theatrical whole. Usually they portray the general populace, but sometimes also quite distinctive social groups, as exemplified by the present recording. It offers some of the most popular and best-known choruses from Italian opera.
