Giuseppe Verdi: Requiem

Event image

Cathedral Choral Society

It has been called the most operatic of all religious music. And no wonder; Verdi’s Requiem is as fired with passion, as overflowing with melodies as any of his operas. And with the same grand range of emotions, from its earth-shattering Dies Irae to the ethereal Agnus Dei, this is music that invades the heart and shakes the soul. Could that Verdi enthusiast, George Bernard Shaw, have been right when he said, “It may well outlast his operas”?

Come hear Giuseppe Verdi’s Requiem performed by the Cathedral Choral Society under the direction of Music Director J. Reilly Lewis. Soloists: Lise Lindstrom, soprano; Ann McMahon Quintero, mezzo-soprano; John Horton Murray, tenor; Wayne Tigges, bass.
