Verdi's vocal masterpiece is here interpreted by a star cast of soloists, DR Concert Choir, BBC Singers and the National Symphony Orchestra of Denmark.
Verdi's great Requiem is a mass for the dead. But it is also a celebration of life - and to the human voice. Verdi was opera composer, and he kept himself almost exclusively to the genre through his long life. The big exception is the masterful Requiem, which he reaches the heights of expressiveness and musical greatness.
