GIUSEPPE VERDI: MESSA DA REQUIEM

The Messa da Requiem is a musical setting of the Roman Catholic funeral mass (Requiem) for four soloists, double choir and orchestra by Giuseppe Verdi. It was composed in memory of Alessandro Manzoni, an Italian poet and novelist whom Verdi adnired. It is rarely performed in liturgy, but rather in concert form of around 85-90 minutes in lenght. Musicologist David Rosen calls it probably the most frequently performed major choral work composed since the compilation of Mozart's Requiem.
