Verdi Messa da requiem 84’ 

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.
