About

Verdiís Requiem is (along with Mozartís Requiem) the most famous 'Mass for the Dead' ever written. Far exceeding its liturgical function, the work is a human statement of all emotions connected with death: from the utter terror of the Dies Irae (Day of Wrath), the anguish of the Libera Me, to triumph, consolation and resignation.

This classic recording is conducted by the Italian Maestro Giuseppe PatanŤ, an opera veteran, who offers a profound and moving performance of this 'Sacred Opera', along with a superb cast of Italian vocalists.

Liner notes and sung texts are included in the booklet.

Recorded in 1975, captured in sumptuous, excellent analogue sound.
