The human voice is perhaps the most powerful of all instruments, expressing the deepest passions, joys and sorrows of our souls. Verdi applied opera technique to the sacred text, filling it with soaring melodies, lush orchestration and music that perfectly conveys the text's dramatic intensity. The result is his greatest choral piece and an icon of Western music.
