Great chorus. Tenor was a bit lacking in projection, but the other three lead singers were excellent. Fantastic piece.

A truly world class performance! The soloists, the orchestra and the chorus were all in top form. Bravo!

Description

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.
