Verdi Requiem

Giuseppe Verdi composed his dramatic Messa da requiem in 1874, in memory of Alessandro Manzoni, an Italian poet and novelist whom Verdi admired. By turns terrifying and heart-breakingly beautiful, it is well-known for its exquisite melodies and depth of emotion, as one might expect from the master of Italian opera.

This concert is part of the Three Choirs Festival series
