Guiseppe Verdi’s Requiem remains an unrivaled masterpiece and one of the most treasured choral works of all time. It is truly a work by which all other requiems are measured. The Requiem was composed in 1874 to honor the passing of Alessandro Manzoni, an Italian novelist, poet and patriot whose works helped influence Italian unification.
