Verdi's Requiem Mass was beautifully presented with all aspects of the music very carefully interwoven. The orchestra, the 140 voice chorus and the 4 soloists were all attentive to the conductor and to the intonations of the various parts of the mass. A thoroughly engrossing performance.
Verdi’s Requiem, for orchestra, four soloists, and double choir, is a colossal setting of the Catholic mass. Now a standard of the choral repertoire, and operatic in its scale and grandeur, it may never have existed if not for the ill-fated collaboration by several Italian composers to honor the life of Rossini with a requiem in his honor. Verdi expanded his contribution to this project into the emotional and revered work we know today.
