Verdi wrote his Messa da Requiem in 1873-1874 for Alessandro Manzoni, a poet whom he much admired. Like Brahm's German Requiem, Verdi's Mass for the Dead is not intended for liturgical use but for the concert hall. In addition to its profound spirituality, this masterpiece brings together the finest qualities from Verdi's operas: endless melodic lines and captivating musico-dramatic effects.
